A New Immigration Movie

There is a new movie available on DVD, called the Golden Door or Nuovomondo.

It is about the journey of a Sicilian widower, his mother, and two sons who immigrate to America. The story is about their journey from Sicily to New York in the early 20th century. It is about the steamship and their Ellis Island experience. Some English is spoken, but subtitles easily carry the other conversations.

I wonder how accurate the story is in terms of their ordeal. Please comment if you have seen the movie.
