Paul Schrader directs the thriller centering on members of a church who are troubled by the loss of their loved ones.
In First Reformed, Ethan Hawke plays an ex-military chaplain who, after losing his son, befriends a woman (Amanda Seyfried) also suffering from the loss of her husband.
Here, The Hollywood Reporter debuts two first-look images for the film, one showing Hawke’s chaplain character and the other of Seyfried (below).
As the plot thickens, Hawke’s character dives deeper into his church’s suspicious affairs, finding discovers hidden secrets of his church’s complicity with unethical corporations. Cedric the Entertainer (Barbershop, A Haunted House) also stars in the film helmed by Paul Schrader.
Killer Films, Christine Vachon, David Hinojosa and Frank Murray produced the film, which Arclight Films is selling in Cannes.
