I loved this movie... right to the end. Then, I was supremely annoyed. I expected the main character to do something other than be a self-absorbed pig.

This is a very good movie. I caught the trailer a few months ago and I knew it was "I have to watch" this kind of movie. As a side note, when she says "real time, not arab time" was one of the funniest and truest statements I've heard

Mr DrlHeart please take the movie from human perspective, it is a tragedy and reflects the fact

This is a heartbreaking, joyful little gem of a movie. It will stay with you long after the credits roll. It's adult in the true meaning of the word. It deserves oscar nominations all four directions. You will smile in spite of your tears and you will be very glad to be one of the visitors.

A combination immigrant/resurrection tale, Visitor tilts toward the soulful rather than the political, and could be this year's humanistic indie hit. Full Review

The curious thing about The Visitor is that even as it goes more or less where you think it will, it still manages to surprise you along the way. Full Review

Washington Post
Gives viewers a perceptive, deeply personal take on the timeless immigrant narrative, in which the most epic journey is finally one of self-discovery. Full Review

An unassuming but quietly heartbreaking drama. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
It is one of the year's most intriguing dramas, with a quartet of powerful performances. Full Review
