Watch A Second Clip from James Gray’s Cannes Entry, ‘The Immigrant’



For nearly two decades, director James Gray has been making refined dramas about emotionally complex characters, often immigrants. Now Gray is back with a film apporpirately titled The Immigrant, which has been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or at Cannes. Set in the shady world of 1920s vaudeville on New York’s Lower East Side, the film follows two Polish sisters who migrate to the U.S. in search of the American Dream. Oscar winner Marion Cotillard joins two Oscar nominees: Jeremy Renner and Joaquin Phoenix, a Gray regular, having also appeared in the director’s last three films. As with Gray’s last film, 2008′s Two Lovers, the director co-wrote the script with the late Ric Menello. A brand new clip has been released, which you can watch below. Enjoy!
