Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Paul Thomas Anderson writes and directs this Academy Award-nominated drama about a US Navy veteran suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder who seeks salvation in the company of a charismatic cult leader.
Joaquin Phoenix stars as Freddie Quell, a troubled drifter who arrives home to post-WWII America shaken, disillusioned and fearful of the future.
A raging alcoholic, Quell cannot begin to make sense of his deeply-rooted inner torment, let alone surmount it.
When he meets Lancaster Dodd (Philip Seymour Hoffman), the 'master' of a cult called The Cause, an intense and ambiguous relationship develops between the two men.
But do Dodd's teachings hold the power to turn Quell's life around?
