Having recently wrapped up production in New York City, the first look at our highly-anticipated next film from James Gray (Two Lovers, We Own the Night) has arrived. Low Life follows a woman (Marion Cotillard) who immigrates from Poland to America, but her life takes a turn for the worst as she gets wrapped up with a pimp (Joaquin Phoenix), all while a magician (Jeremy Renner) attempts to befriend her.
These first stills from French magazine Liberation (via The Playlist) feature the immaculate production design we’re used to from Gray, as we get this initial glimpse of the recreated 1920s New York City. Their article also notes influences from Italian architect Carlo Mollino and Robert Bresson’s classic Diary of a Country Priest, as well as paintings by Everett Shinn and George Bellows, which all build toward a “religious” feel. Check out the full article for more, as we expect this one to land later this year after a fall festival debut.
