Why: We've been waiting a long time for Gray's first film in five years, which was rumored to show up as early as Venice last year. Naturally, Gray held on for a slot at Cannes, which has become the New Yorker's home away from home – even when US critics shrug him off, the French routinely celebrate him as a master. Is “The Immigrant” the film that'll prove them right? The signs are promising. Gray's first period piece, it appears to wrap classical Hollywood melodrama in something a little more darkly romantic: a love triangle between an Eastern European Ellis Island immigrant (Cotillard), her charismatic pink (Phoenix) and his magician brother (Renner). Early stills suggest we should expect one of the most visually lush films in the lineup.
