Up and at 'em, soldiers! It's time for another edition of The (Mostly) Indie Film Calendar, a weekly look at what's happening (mostly) beyond the multiplexes over the next seven days. Revivals, retrospectives, series, midnight madness, it's all here. If you know of something cool happening near you -- or just something you think belongs on the calendar -- let me know!

Two films that played at Sundance (they both played at other fests, too) are opening in New York and L.A. today. You can expect them both to expand in the coming weeks. They are:
  • The Visitor, starring Richard Jenkins as a man who returns to his New York City apartment to find an immigrant couple living there. The film is notable for being the sophomore effort by Tom McCarthy, whose Station Agent was an indie darling a few years ago. Cinematical's Scott Weinberg spoke favorably of The Visitor when he reviewed it at Sundance.
