Movie poster image for "FIRST REFORMED"


Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary parish pastor 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. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, 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 director Paul Schrader (TAXI DRIVER) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.
