Film "The Immigrant" starring Marion Cotillard 2014-09-14 19:00:00
Description

THE IMMIGRANT

Director: James Gray   USA, 2014, 118 minutes; PG

Cast: Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner

“FIVE STARS!” –Time Out New York

Marion Cotillard has made her share of unremarkable films. But when the French star, who won the Academy Award for her Edith Piaf in La Vie en Rose, gets it right, the result is magic. Her Piaf was that. So was the whale trainer in Rust and Bone. In the title role of The Immigrant, as Ewa, a destitute Pole who arrives in New York City in 1921 in search of the American Dream, she once again astounds.

Ewa is plucked from the deportation line by Bruno Weiss (Joaquin Phoenix), who hands the guard a few bills to facilitate Ewa's hasty transfer to a Manhattan-bound boat. In fact, Bruno runs a bevy of bawdy women in a burlesque hall, offering their supplemental services to men willing to pay. He keeps his "little doves" several flights up in the tenement where he lives. Phoenix plays this guy with a kind of unpredictable, flummoxed charm. He can be wily and confident one minute, needy and pathetic the next.

Of course, Bruno falls in love with Ewa. And of course, there is a rival: Emil, also known as Orlando the Magician, a glinty-eyed prestidigitator (watch him levitate!) played with charisma and a pencil-thin mustache by Jeremy Renner. Bruno and Emil have a long history - in fact, they are cousins.

Cotillard gives Ewa an inner life, full of ferocity, vulnerability, cunning. In her peacock feathers and her cheap flapper's jewelry, or in a dark woolen shawl, huddled in the night, this woman is absolutely wondrous, absolutely real. –Philadelphia Inquirer
