Movie: The Visitor

I put this movie on my Netflix queue because the star, Richard Jenkins, who has been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar, appeared on The View. I have to say that I really enjoyed it. Now, I suspect that whether or not you like this movie will depend on your political leanings, since it is about "illegal" immigrants. It would be nice if we could just put aside those politics and judge the movie on a theatrical basis rather than a political one. But it does bring to light the recent workings of U.S. Immigration. It was a good movie. Politically, my feelings are mixed. While I don't necessarily agree with how illegal immigrants are treated, I do have to take into consideration that they are "illegal." And that's all I'm going to say about that. Watch the movie.
