    You can view 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.
