Fresh off the film’s American debut at the New York Film Festival, the first trailer for writer/director James Gray’s new film The Immigrant has landed online.  The story centers on a woman (Marion Cotillard) immigrating to New York City in the 1920s who, when her sister is rejected and sent back to Poland, finds herself lured into the world of prostitution in the hopes of eventually being reunited with her kin.  This international trailer highlights the dichotomy between the two male leads, Joaquin Phonix as the charming man who recruits Cotillard into prostitution and Jeremy Renner as his debonair magician cousin.  Gray has definitely crafted a visually appealing look at the 1920s underbelly, and while Matt found the film misguided in his review, I’m intrigued by the interplay between the trio of main characters.

Hit the jump to watch the international trailer, which is NSFW.  The Immigrant will open in the U.S. sometime next spring.

Here’s a synopsis for The Immigrant:

1920. In search of a new start and the American dream, Ewa Cybulski and her sister Magda sail to New York from their native Poland. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined. Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, she quickly falls prey to Bruno, a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. And then one day, Ewa encounters Bruno’s cousin, the debonair magician Orlando. He sweeps Ewa off her feet and quickly becomes her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.

    I will see this. Why? Dagmara Domincyzk. The gorgeous actress who acted in The Count of Monte Cristo…and nothing else. Where did she go?

    The fact that the brilliant Cotillard, Phoenix, and Renner are co-starring only peaks my appetite.

      I caught up this movie in a local film festival. The only actor who stands out in the movie is Joaquin Phoneix. There was a time during the movie I just wanted to jump up the screen and slap Marion Cortillard to act. She has only one expression all through out the movie. As the movie is terrible, I heard it is heading directly to home video.

        I hear the movie is pretty bad, but that’s not the fault of the actors, all of which are brilliant (even if they aren’t on top form here). It’s the fault of the director and the slack storytelling.
