Movie Preview: Crossing Over

Despite some moments that seem a little overwrought, this trailer for Crossing Over (not to be confused with the TV show about talking to dead people) is one of the most riveting previews I've seen in a while. It looks a bit like Crash (several storylines weaving together in various ways), but with the subject matter being illegal immigration (and what it means to be an American and what's right and what's wrong, etc. etc.).

The other intriguing aspect of the trailer is the impressive cast: Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta, Alice Braga (I Am Legend), Summer Bishil (Towelhead) and Alice Eva.

Oh, did I forget to mention Jim Sturgess?

Crossing Over opens sometime in 2009. This trailer really sucked me in, so to watch for yourself,

I'm so glad to FINALLY see a trailer! Sean Penn has a cameo as a border patrolman, I believe. And Harrison and Jim are two of my fave actors.

i knew that i heard about this one a while back but i totally forgot about it. i like the cast and i think that there's definitely something to be said about the topic - now if it translates well in a movie - that's a different story.

You can view an edited trailer with ONLY footage showing Jim Sturgess’ character, Gavin Kossef, who is based on director Wayne Kramer’s own experiences with U.S. immigration. ***** SPOILERS ****** Sturgess plays a British-jewish singer, who masquarades as a Jewish rabbinical student to get into the U.S. illegally. Sturgess wrote and performed two songs in the movie. According to my source, “Make Your Mind Up,” was used as background music in one of the scenes and another jim-song was performed on stage by him. Apparently Jim’s charcter (Gavin) has an Austrailian girlfriend who has sex with an INS agent in order to stay in the country. There’s a very emotional scene where Gavin confronts his girlfriend when he finds out about the affair. Jim’s performance was outstanding, especially one scene where, under tremendous pressure Gavin is forced to sing in Hebrew to prove himself in front of a rabbi and INS agent. He apparently doesn’t know Hebrew and fakes it, while the rabbi covers for him.
