A Polish immigrant named Ewa who has just escaped the dangers of her homeland, struggles to earn enough money to take her sister out of quarantine. A man named Bruno that works in show business lends a hand to her and he promises to take care of her. Ewa distrusts the man but figures she has no choice, so she stays. But Bruno’s means of helping her out of a bad situation are destructive. They only get worst when Ewa begins to grow closer to Bruno’s magician cousin who is caring and charming.
I thought this was going to be a romantic drama and it was so much more than that. It was more of a cautionary tale but each character evolved and Joaquin Phoenix, Jeremy Renner, and Marion Cotillard were brilliant as always.
