Dailies | Joaquin Phoenix Pimps Out Marion Cotillard in ‘The Immigrant’ Trailer (Video)

Jeremy Renner might be able to save her in James Gray's upcoming period drama

Joaquin Phoenix is a charming but slimy sex trafficker preying on desperate foreigner Marion Cotillard in 1920s New York City in a new trailer for James Gray‘s “The Immigrant.”

The period drama tells the story of a Polish woman (Cotillard) trying to make it in America after being separated from her sister when they arrive at Ellis Island. Phoenix's character promises her shelter in exchange for sex with strangers, but his magician cousin, played by Jeremy Renner, may come to the rescue when he falls for the titular character.
