Join us for dinner, the movie and a discussion of it afterwards.
Upstate New York pastor Toller (Ethan Hawke) has fallen upon troubled times, after pushing his son to enlist only to see him killed in action. But that's only the beginning. An encounter with Mary (Amanda Seyfried) and her militant environmental activist husband further shakes his world, and Toller spirals down a psychological abyss even a lifetime of faith can't prepare him for.
Longtime Scorsese collaborator Paul Schrader (TAXI DRIVER, RAGING BULL, THE LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST) continues a career-long investigation of men pushed to their breaking point in the incendiary FIRST REFORMED. Bringing his trademark themes into the modern world of extremism and division, this is a story of vigilantism that only Schrader could tell.
