'The Visitor' debuts at Little Theatre

Sept. 5, 2008

KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents "The Visitor," a film about finding yourself through total strangers, Friday through Sunday, Sept. 12-14, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

Show times are 7 and 9:30 p.m. Friday; 4:30, 7 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday; and 2:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 and $3 for students.

Written and directed by Tom McCarthy, "The Visitor" is a sophisticated and compelling story of spiritual rebirth and the difference one person can make. It recounts the story of an insular, widowed college professor (Richard Jenkins) who travels to New York to attend a conference and returns to find a young couple living in his apartment. He allows them to stay, and soon finds his life turned around as he learns to play African drums and becomes involved in the New York jazz scene.

"The Visitor" is shown in English. The 2008 film has a run time of 103 minutes and is rated PG for offensive language.

WMU's Little Theatre is located at the corner of Oakland Drive and Oliver Street on WMU's East Campus. Free off-street parking is available behind the theatre.
