GOLDEN DOOR, with an original mix of both magical and provocatively authentic visuals, turns the classic tale of coming to America into a wondrous and soulful experience. It is a romantic fable that takes audiences into the very heart of this quintessential American experience - as one man, driven by fantastic dreams and confronted with shocking realities, makes an epic odyssey in search of a brand new world.
On a perilous steamship journey from his Sicilian village, the widower Salvatore Mancuso (Vincenzo Amato) encounters a ravishing, mystery-shrouded Englishwoman, Lucy (Charlotte Gainsbourg, SCIENCE OF SLEEP) - as the Old World literally collides into the New with seductive results. Amid a harrowing crossing, an unexpected love story unfolds all the way to the halls of Ellis Island, where both Salvatore and Lucy will stop at nothing to make it through the GOLDEN DOOR to the America of their imaginations.
