Martin Scorsese Presents, Golden Door. Sicily. 1913. From a desolate corner of Sicily, the Mancuso family, alongside hundreds of their countrymen, embark on an epic journey towards a land dreamed of but never seen - an earthly paradise where fruits grow perfect and huge, and money falls from the trees. The New World, America. But not all are destined to enter the gates of Heaven.
Golden Door, a modern fable from director, Emanuele Crialese (Respiro), captures the spirit of the immigrant experience as one family sheds the comfort of the Old World for the opportunities of the New - a risk that carries no guarantee of success. Starring Charlotte Gainsbourg (The Science Of Sleep, 21 Grams).
Golden Door is released in the UK on 29th June by Optimum Releasing.
