Los Feliz 3 | Introduction by filmmaker Abel Ferrara
‘Seven Nights with Abel Ferrara: A 17-Film Retrospective With Live Scores’
Home / Now Showing / WELCOME TO NEW YORK
In French and English with English subtitles.
A sex-addicted French financier, a fateful hotel room encounter, and a scandal that would rock the world: the mighty Gérard Depardieu gives a fearless performance in this ripped-from-the-headlines saga of sin and sleaze from Abel Ferrara. Inspired by one of the most high-profile public implosions in recent memory, WELCOME TO NEW YORK follows a prominent international banker (Depardieu) as he spirals out of control during a drug and sex-fueled trip to America — culminating in a shocking incident involving a hotel maid and his subsequent arrest. Jacqueline Bisset co-stars in this provocative portrait of a man whose fall from grace sent shockwaves throughout the world.
