The Visitor: Discussion Guide

This is a discussion guide for the film The Visitor (dir. Tom McCarthy), which follows the developing friendship between a university professor and the immigrant couple he finds living in his New York apartment. This film explores the fraught experience of deportation, and the discussion guide focuses on the film as a tool for exploring immigration, detention, and deportation issues in the United States. The film is also a useful tool for exploring the impact of September 11th on Arab-Americans and immigrants to the United States from the Middle East. This guide allows the teacher to make connections between discussions on the Middle East and immigration at large.
