“… restrained, thoughtful filmmaking that satisfies on nearly every level” is how we described James Gray‘s “The Immigrant” out of the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, but due to the whims and caprices of Harvey Weinstein, the film has been held until 2014. With the picture now playing internationally there is no shortage of promo material popping up, and today we round up the latest batch.
A handful of new pictures and posters have arrived, providing another glimpse at Gray’s carefully realized, turn-of-the-century New York City. Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner are the trio that lead the movie, telling the tale of Polish immigrant who comes to America, falls into the clutches of a pimp and eyes salvation in a magician. Sounds like the kind of meaty drama perfect for this time of year, but alas, it’s not to be.
