The Immigrant trailer

We got our first look at the Cannes 2014 slate this morning, but there are still a few Cannes 2013 films making their way to theaters. One is James Gray‘s The Immigrant, starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jeremy Renner.

Cotillard stars as Ewa, a Polish woman who emigrates to New York in 1920 with her sister Magda (Angela Sarafyan). The two are separated upon their arrival at Ellis Island when Magda turns out to be sick.

Desperate, penniless, and alone, Ewa accepts the help of a charming stranger named Bruno (Phoenix) who turns out to be a pimp. He traps her in a life of prostitution, but she sees the potential for salvation when she meets his more pure-hearted cousin Orlando (Renner). Watch the new The Immigrant trailer after the jump.

Watch the Orange Is the New Black season two trailer below. Read More »
