Marion Cotillard polishes her Polish for 'The Immigrant'

Oscar-winning French actress Marion Cotillard seems to love a challenge. After tackling a tough Edith Piaf impersonation for "La Vie En Rose", having her legs eaten by a killer whale in "Rust and Bone" and taking on a 100% English part in "Blood Ties", she’s now learned to speak Polish for her latest role. In "The Immigrant", she plays a young woman who travels from Poland to New York in the 1920s, in search of a new life - but finds the American Dream isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Eve Jackson met up with the film’s director James Gray, who told her why he thinks it’s his best work yet. 

Also on the show: a Jordanian Mona Lisa comes to Paris for the Franco-Arabic film festival.

Finally, Superman, Batman, and Spider-Man lend a hand as publishers try to spark kids’ passion for reading at the Paris Children’s Book Fair.
