ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Masterful, Oscar nominated director/writer Paul Thomas Anderson (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, INHERENT VICE) delivers "a sharply written, unforgettably directed character study" (New York Post) with his iconic film, THE MASTER, that took home Best Director at the Venice Film Festival, and considered by critics as one of the best films of 2012. It follows a naval veteran who arrives home from war and gets swept up in the "Cause" and its charismatic leader. Academy Award nominee Philip Seymour Hoffman (CAPOTE, MONEYBALL) stars as the leader, alongside Oscar nominee Amy Adams (AMERICAN HUSTLE, ARRIVAL), with a career-defining Joaquin Phoenix (Oscar winner: JOKER; HER, WALK THE LINE) as the veteran. Featuring a brilliant score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, in his second collaboration with Anderson.

SYNOPSIS

Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix) is a troubled, boozy drifter struggling with the trauma of World War II and whatever inner demons ruled his life before that. On a fateful night in 1950, Freddie boards a passing boat and meets Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the charismatic leader of a religious movement called the Cause. Freddie tries hard to adhere to Dodd’s weird teachings and forms a close bond with his mentor, even as other members of Dodd’s inner circle see him as a threat.
