“I thought there was something very beautiful about exploring a melodrama from a female protagonist’s perspective because all of a sudden I would be free from the constraints of, what I would call, macho posturing, male behavior and get straight to the emotional heart of it,” director James Gray said last fall of his upcoming drama “The Immigrant,” which stars Marion Cotillard.
Also starring Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, the set-in-1920s New York movie, gorgeously shot by Darius Khondji, will see release this spring by The Weinstein Company on May 2nd. The opening will be a limited release in New York and L.A. and yes, it’s not going VOD; at least right now. And it’s no longer a Radius/TWC release (the company changed gears on that decision). The film will begin to expand after that.
Lets hope ‘expand’ means the rest of the world!
