24th May 2013

According to the Hollywood Reporter, tenor Joseph Calleja ”magnificently impersonates” Enrico Caruso in director James Gray’s new film, The Immigrant, which premiered at France’s Cannes Film Festival earlier this week. Slated to open in theaters this fall, the movie follows the travails of a young Polish woman, Ewa Cybulski (played by Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard), as she tries to get a foothold in 1920s New York. The “rich, beautifully rendered film” (Variety) also stars Joaquin Phoenix as Bruno Weiss, an immigration worker and club owner, who introduces Ewa to the New World, and Jeremy Renner as Bruno’s rival, Orlando the Magician. Audiences can catch Joseph in the film when he brings the legendary Italian tenor to life in a scene on Ellis Island.
