This Week's Film: The Visitor
Cuisine: Syrian

Synopsis: When a Connecticut college professor returns to his seldom-used New York City apartment, he discovers an illegal immigrant couple (a drummer from Syria, and a jewelry peddler from Senegal) have taken up residence. But instead of having them arrested, he takes the more compassionate approach of allowing them to stay until they can make other living arrangements. In the process, he is drawn into the unfolding drama of their lives.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with my Syrian recipe.
