Director: Paul Schrader
Stars: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric Kyles
Reverend Ernst Toller (a great performance by Hawke) is the pastor of a small parish church in New York. Once a stop on the Underground Railroad, it is now a tourist attraction with a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by a modern church nearby. When pregnant parishioner Mary (Seyfried) asks Toller to counsel her radical environmentalist husband, the clergyman finds himself grappling with his own tormented past and equally despairing future – until he finds redemption. ‘This mesmerising drama of a pastor’s crisis of faith feels like the movie Schrader was put on this planet to make’ (Washington Post).
