The Immigrant

Director James Gray offers stellar melodrama of a foreigner’s journey in America.


Phil Bacharach
In the cacophony of high-concept movies and TV, there’s something to be said for the spare beauty of old-fashioned melodrama. The Immigrant, now playing exclusively at AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, covers familiar territory: A wide-eyed ingénue in the big city falls prey to the clutches of a bad man. Yet that familiarity is part of what makes these stories so powerful. They speak to things — temptation, suffering and redemption — deeply rooted in our collective being.
