French Oscar-winning actress Juliette Binoche is hoping that her movie Breaking and Entering will help audiences understand immigration.
Binoche said her film would help people come to terms with Eastern European immigrants because it shows them as struggling survivors. Binoche's grandmother was a Polish immigrant living in Paris and Binoche studied Bosnians living in Britain for research, reported contactmusic.com.
She said: "Most of the mothers that I met in London have been immigrants for 10 years and they're still struggling. There was one Bosnian woman I spent a lot of time with and we talked about the pain of being an immigrant. These people don't want to go back to where they've come from, but it's hard for them to find a job."
Binoche added: "Their children are their hopes because they sacrificed for them. It's great but it's sad. I can relate, as a human being, leaving everything behind you and trying to rebuild yourself somewhere else. It's a journey. You have to have faith and strength."
