Marion Cotillard & Joaquin Phoenix: Filming in NYC
The 36-year-old actress and her 37-year-old costar are working together on a James Gray film called Low Life.
Marion plays Sonja, a Polish woman trying to emigrate to the United States.
Here’s a synopsis of the film: “[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.”
