Liked this movie very much
17 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie, "The Immigrants" very much. It is one of the best films Steven Macht ever played in. He played Daniel so well. The book is equally good. If you can't see the movie, at least read the book (it's actually a trilogy). The movie has an excellent story line and the actors were very good in their parts. I am intrigued with the era when so many immigrants came to America to search for their fortunes. I believe it was hard to make that big of a decision then when you did, it would be fantastic if/when you did make your fortune like Daniel did. But in the end he gave up his fortune for happiness. Wish I could get the movie and see it again.
