In his stunning new film FIRST REFORMED, Paul Schrader (TAXI DRIVER) has made a deeply personal story about faith in crisis. Toller (Ethan Hawke, in a brilliant performance) is a priest who must grapple with dwindling attendance and the politics of his church’s leadership. But when a young parishioner confesses his doubts in the face of the earth’s environmental crisis, Toller’s own life takes an unforeseen turn, bringing him face to face with his own conscience. Drawing from influences like Bresson, Dreyer, and Tarkovsky, Schrader has made an unforgettable film that is guaranteed to keep audiences talking.
