Directed and written by Tom McCarthy, this is a moving story that makes the issue of immigration personal. Walter (Richard Jenkins) owns an apartment in New York that he rarely visits. One day he returns and discovers a young couple living there, Tarek and Zainab, migrants from Syria and Senegal, who thought they were legally renting the place. Soon, they become friendly and Tarek’s mother comes to visit and tries to help them settle legally. But complications appear and difficult questions arise when they are confronted by how immigration laws are applied. 104 min.
