The Visitor Drums Up Harsh Reality

Drum roll, puh-leze.
Here's another heartfelt immigration flick sure to bring Lou Dobbs's blood to boil. (See "Under the Same Moon.")
This one revolves around a droopy college professor. Another contemporary theme? (See "Smart People.")
But the real stars of this unsentimental take on our immigration disaster are Tarek, a Syrian musician, and his girlfriend, Zainab, a Senegalese jewelry designer.
This modern-day Romeo and Juliet aren't threatened by familial feuds, but inhumane governmental policy.
The Movie Slut was enchanted by another star in this must-see film: New York City in all its marvelous multi-cultural madness.
