Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner star in the James Gray period drama The Immigrant. It centers on Ewa Cybulski (Cotillard) and her sister Magda (Angela Sarafyan), who immigrate to New York from their native Poland to start a new life. The two women are separated when doctors discover Magda is seriously ill and she is quarantined. Ewa then falls into the hands of Bruno (Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. She later meets Bruno’s cousin Orlando (Renner), a magician who sweeps her off her feet and is her best chance to escape the nightmarish life she’s been enduring. Have a look at the new trailer for the Weinstein Co pic, which opens May 16 in limited release:
