Cinematique Presents: "The Immigrant"
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. The two women become separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined on Ellis Island. Alone and desperate to reunite with Magda, Ewa quickly falls prey to Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) - a dashing stage magician who is also Bruno's cousin - restores her hopes for a brighter future. (R, 2hrs)
