Check out this first brief clip from James Gray's Cannes competition title "The Immigrant," starring Marion Cotillard, Joaquin Phoenix and Jeremy Renner, which centers on a woman's turbulent immigration from her native Poland to New York City. In the clip, Renner's character offers some advice to Cotillard's troubled Ewa, who is bedecked in a 1920s embellished headband and frock. 

The film is Gray's first since 2008's "Two Lovers," also starring Phoenix. It premieres late next week on Friday, May 24. Here's a more detailed plot synopsis:

Cotillard and Phoenix in 'The Immigrant'

1920. In search of a new start and the American dream, Ewa Cybulski (Marion Cotillard) and her sister Magda sail to New York from their native Poland. When they reach Ellis Island, doctors discover that Magda is ill, and the two women are separated. Ewa is released onto the mean streets of Manhattan while her sister is quarantined. Alone, with nowhere to turn and desperate to reunite with Magda, she quickly falls prey to Bruno (Joaquin Phoenix), a charming but wicked man who takes her in and forces her into prostitution. And then one day, Ewa encounters Bruno's cousin, the debonair magician Orlando (Jeremy Renner). He sweeps Ewa off her feet and quickly becomes her only chance to escape the nightmare in which she finds herself.
