Marion Cotillard’s upcoming movie by James Gray is no longer untitled: According to The Playlist James Gray made a suprise appearance during the Marion Cotillard tribute at Telluride (more on that later) and presented a clip as well as the new title “Nightingale”. Why the confusion?

“It used to be called ‘Lowlife,'” Gray said, “But the author of the novel threatened to sue me. So now we’re calling it ‘Nightingale.'” Gray joked that a few others were vying for the title, but added, “We’ll win in the end…coming sometime in 2017,” he joked.

And here’s a description of the clip that was shown:

In the scene, Marion Cotillard’s prostitute character Sonya is in church praying, and then takes a confessional. “I’m ashamed,” she said through weepy tears and a tattered black shawl, before launching into all her crimes and misdemeanors: lying, theft of food, her rape, and ultimately the revelation that she’s been whoring herself out to help pay and take care of her sick sister.

Having just come off the boat from Poland a few months previously coming to the American promised land, it appears that Sonya’s dream of a better life is actually worse than she can imagine. “We were caged like animals,” Cotilard said about the voyage on a ship to North America. Her rape was public knowledge on the boat and she says she’s damaged goods, hence having to prostitute herself.

Seemingly waiting to exploit her when she got off the boat is her pimp, Joaquin Phoenix, who in this scene, surreptitiously follows her into the church and ease-drops on her confession. Renner’s character didn’t feature in what felt like it was probably a scene from early on in the movie.
