The Palme d'Or nominee at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival is planned for Blu-ray in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Starz/Anchor Bay is working on 'The Immigrant' for Blu-ray on April 7.
Ewa Cybulska (Marion Cotillard) and her sister sail to New York from their native Poland in search of a new start and the American dream. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda (Angela Sarafyan) is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan and quickly falls prey to Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. The arrival of Orlando (Jeremy Renner) – a dashing stage magician who is also Bruno's cousin – restores her self-belief and hopes for a brighter future, becoming her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a lossless 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements will include: Feature Commentary with Writer/Director James Gray and The Visual Inspiration of The Immigrant.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.99.
