Engaging with life through engaging with illegal immigrants

My wife and I enjoyed watching the movie, The Visitor. A widowed economics professor is disengaged with life but becomes involved with several illegal immigrants in New York city. The movie nicely intertwines several themes: living with passion particularly through music, the anxious and precarious life of illegal immigrants, the humanity of the immigrants, and the heartless and harsh treatment of the immigrants by the USA government. Unfortunately, the Australian government has similar policies and attitudes.
