The Immigrant / Top 5 Immigrant Movies

Josh and Michael Phillips — along with their respective gangs of New York — leave the Five Points for an exploration of immigration in the movies. They’ve got a review of James Gray’s THE IMMIGRANT, starring Joaquin Phoenix and Marion Cotillard, and their Top 5 Immigrant Movies. Plus, recommendations for EDGE OF TOMORROW and HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON 2.
