FIRST REFORMED

DIRECTED BY: Paul Schrader

STARRING: Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Cedric Kyles

 

ABOUT:


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. From writer-director Paul Schrader (TAXI DRIVER, AMERICAN GIGOLO, AFFLICTION) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.
