The Visitor

We had a rainy day today, so we decided to go to lunch in Traverse City and then see The Visitor at the State Theatre. We ate at a fabulous place called Amical. If you are ever in the area, you must give it a try. The menu reminded me of a French Bistro and was every bit as quaint. I could easily become a regular there.

The State Theatre has been beautifully restored thanks to a very large investment from Michael Moore and many, many volunteers in the community. They have 25 cent movies three days a week for the kids, they host the Traverse City Film Festival, they show the current season of the Metropolitan Opera live in the winter on the big screen. It is such a boon to the community.

The Visitor was a great movie. It was very human and touching; another story about how the United States has unjustly treated it's immigrants. I highly recommend seeing it.
