Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix Hit the 'Low Life' Set

Marion Cotillard and Joaquin Phoenix film some scenes for their new movie, Low Life, on Friday (January 27) in New York City.

The 36-year-old French actress plays Sonya Cybulski, a woman trying to immigrate from Poland, in the romantic drama directed by James Gray.

Here’s the film’s synopsis: “[Sonya's] American dream turns into a nightmare. While sailing to Ellis Island and a new start, her sister grows deathly ill and she is forced to trade sexual favors for medicine and food to keep her sister alive. Once they land, she is warned to keep quiet about what happened … With no place to go, she falls prey to a charming sleazebag (Phoenix), who persuades her to turn tricks in New York.”

Joaquin and James previously worked together on 2008′s Two Lovers, 2007′s We Own the Night, and 1999′s The Yards.

    So great to see Joaquin Phoenix working again! Wonderful actor. And playing a sleazebag? I know he’ll do a tremendous job. I love watching him and I see an Oscar in his future.

  • Black-Dahlia

    Is she going to pull off the Polish accent? Did they really have to hire a French actress that doesn’t have any slavic features?

  • Leenah

  • BloodbuzzOhio

    @GFW: He started acting last year. He made The Master (directed by Paul Thomas Anderson) and co-starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Laura Dern and Amy Adams! I seriously can’t wait.

    These days I’ve been searching through just jared website just to see an article about JP back on the set. This day will go down in history. Have missed hi, so much. These days it’s all filled with Gossip Girl cat or Leonardo DiCaprio dating a new girl, or celebrity babies and etc. Now finally true man back in action.
    By the way I too was surprised they hired Marion as an immigrant from Slavic country – can she realy pull off the accent? Honestly guys she might be great but French is a totally another language.

    The gray in his hair is killer sexy.
