From writer-director Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver;) comes a gripping thriller about a crisis of faith that is at once personal, political, and planetary.

First reformed is coming from indie distributor A24 who are making a name for themselves with hugely successful releases like The Witch and The Disaster Artist previously.

Reverend Ernst Toller (Ethan Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a small Dutch Reform church 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, eclipsed by its nearby parent church, Abundant Life, with its state-of-the-art facilities and 5,000-strong flock.

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, until he finds redemption in an act of grandiose violence.

First Reformed stars Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried and Cedric Kyles.

It sees release May 18, 2018.

Recommended Release: Scorsese Collection
