|display_description||Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary parish pastor at a small church in upstate New York on the cusp of celebrating its 250th anniversary. The church is now a tourist attraction catering to a dwindling congregation, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life. When a pregnant parishioner (Amanda Seyfried) asks Reverend Toller to counsel her husband, a radical environmentalist, the clergyman finds himself plunged into his own tormented past, and equally despairing future. From writer-director Paul Schrader (*Taxi Driver, Raging Bull*) comes a gripping drama about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary. Nominated for a Golden Lion at the **Venice Film Festival**. Nominated for four **Film Independent Spirit Awards** including Best Feature and Best Male Lead. "*A "Taxi Driver" for the present day, with Hawke in a career-best performance.*" - Rafer Guzman, ***Newsday***|
