In the years after WWII, an American intellectual creates a religion. When he meets a troubled drifter, he invites the man to help him spread the new faith. As their congregation increases, the drifter begins to question the religion he once accepted and the mentor who gave his life direction.
With career-best turns from Joaquin Phoenix & Philip Seymour Hoffman, PTA’s meticulously realized epic of modern America captures a nation buckled under the weight of crackpot ideas and snake-oil solutions. The Master reveals the desperate search for purpose on the choppy waters of the 20th century.
