"An astonishingly beautiful, irresistibly grim movie."
- San Francisco Chronicle
"The film is earnestly and unabashedly melodramatic to an extent that may baffle audiences accustomed to clever, knowing historical fictions. But it also has a depth and purity of feeling that makes other movies feel timid and small by comparison."
- The New York Times
"Gray has a knack for wrapping big themes into an intimate embrace, and The Immigrant feels both epic and fine-grained."
- Village Voice
