First Reformed

We Cannot Accept Passes for This Film Through June 21st

From celebrated filmmaker Paul Schrader (writer of Taxi Driver and writer/director of American Gigolo and Affliction) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political and planetary.

“One of the best movies of 2018. A cinematic whirlwind that leaves you both exhilarated and spent. “– Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, the church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence. (Dir. by Paul Schrader, 2018, USA, 108 mins., Rated R)
