Drama, Event , trackback

In James Gray’s The Immigrant, Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister sail to New York from their native Poland in search of a new start and the American dream. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda (Angela Sarafyan) is ill, and the two women are separated. “I can help you,” Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix) whispers, and with a quick bribe to the bureaucrat who had deemed Ewa a woman of loose virtues, the helpful stranger whisks her through the lawless streets of Lower Manhattan. Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno.
