Story


Set in America in the years following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Phoenix) as his right-hand man. But as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..with its bravura technique and superbly synched turns from Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, the Weinstein Co. release should generate robust returns and furious discussion long after its hugely anticipated Sept. 14 bow..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
“..this is the kind of film that gets richer and more beautiful in multiple viewings and for years to come. And that is the true test of art..”
by David Poland [Movie City News]
“..often-maddening ways it manifests in the present through incredible performances and direction..”
by Charlie Schmidilin [The Playlist]
