Review: (#1) The coloration seems off, but it’s the only thing that gives the poster visual depth, which is a merit. (#2-#4) These posters aren’t particularly moving. They have something minor to say about the film for those who’ve seen the trailer, but without that, they just don’t have any pull.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: There’s something humbling to this trailer that will impress those unfamiliar with the director’s work. It looks to be a simple, yet evocative portrait of the struggles of immigrant life. It’s a generic trailer, but the raw emotion is sitting right on the surface.

Oscar Prospects:

It could be submitted for the Oscars and, based on reviews, it could be a contender for a nomination.
