Set in early 20th century Sicily, Salvatore, an impoverished farmer and widower, decides to emigrate to the US with his family. He meets Lucy, a British lady, who for unknown reasons wants to marry before arriving in America. Once in Ellis Island, their destinies are in the hands of the officers.

MUBI's take

Scooping up six (!) prizes at the Venice Film Festival, this dreamy odyssey about the days of Ellis Island is a finely-wrought gem, going beyond the obvious to find something surprising, even dazzling. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourgh, with gorgeous photography by Agnès Godard.
