The Immigrant (R)

At the start of The Immigrant, Polish refugee sisters Ewa (Marion Cotillard) and Magda (Angela Sarafyan) are thrilled to arrive at Ellis Island in 1923 New York. Their happiness is short-lived, though. Magda is diagnosed with tuberculosis and quarantined. Ewa’s aunt and uncle, who were supposed to pick her up, are no-shows, and her unspecified behavior on the ship that brought her to the United States was deemed to be of “low morals” by the authorities. She’s only been in America for a few hours, and already she’s designated for deportation.
