Marion Cotillard was present at 'The Immigrant' photocall at the Cannes film festival with co-star Jeremy Renner and director James Gray, although the film's other star Joaquin Phoenix was missing in action. Marion's eyes started watering during the photocall, and everyone mistakenly assumed that she was crying out of sadness or because of the movie.
However, the rumors have been cleared up and apparently, she was actually crying because of the bright sun. Her eyes had apparently been tearing up all afternoon and she was wearing sunglasses, but couldn't for the photocall.
The reviews for 'The Immigrant' have started pouring in, and it looks like another phenomenal performance turned in by Marion Cotillard. Although it's still several months too early, Marion and Joaquin Phoenix are both in the conversation for the Oscar race. The reviews are nothing short of glowing for the two performances, and several reviews state that both of them are a 'lock' for nominations.
'The Immigrant', in addition to starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix, and Jeremy Renner, also stars Angela Sarafyan, Ilia Volok, and other international film stars. The film doesn't yet have domestic distribution, but that's certainly about to change after the reactions to the screening today.
