Nominated Best Film in 2013 New York Film Festival, Best International Film in 2013 Munich Film Festival and won Outstanding Achievement award in 2014 Newport Beach Film Festival.

The film tells the story of Ewa (Marion Cotillard) who runs away with her sister from war in their native Poland and reach to Ellis Island as immigrants in search for a better life in 1921. Ewa left alone when her lung sick sister is quarantined and no asylum help from her aunt faced with the threat of repatriation. She falls for Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix)who lends her a helping hand to ensure her acceptance in the country and the immigrant life gets tough as the relation gets complicated and unbalanced with Bruno and Bruno’s cousin Emil (Jeremy Renner).

Writer/director James Gray made his first film Little Odessa (1994) at the age of twenty-five. The film, which starred Tim Roth, Edward Furlong, Vanessa Redgrave and ‘Maximillian Schell’, received critical acclaim and was the winner of the Venice Film Festival’s prestigious Silver Lion Award in 1994.
Miramax Films released James Gray’s second feature, The Yards (2000) starring Mark Wahlberg, Joaquin Phoenix, Faye Dunaway, Ellen Burstyn, Charlize Theron andJames Caan in fall of 2000. The film was selected for official competition at the 2000 Cannes International Film Festival. Prior to “The Yards” and “Little Odessa”, Gray attended film school at the University of Southern California. It was there that his student film Cowboys and Angels was first seen by producer Paul Webster, who encouraged Gray to write his first feature script.

As a child growing up in Queens, New York, Gray aspired to be a painter. However, when introduced in his early teenage years to the works of various filmmakers, including Francis Ford Coppola, Gray’s interests expanded to the art of filmmaking.
