immigration 2013

The Immigrant | 2013 | dir. James Gray

Even with gorgeous cinematography from Darius Khondji and a great lead performance from Marion Cotillard, who really is incredibly and shockingly real as an immigrant turned prostitute, there is something about the mostly predictable screenplay and somewhat bleak direction that kept this film from reaching the emotional heights that it easily could have. 


(The execution of this final image was jaw-droppingly good! I’m very impressed, Darius Khondji. Very impressed.)
