It’s been decades since Paul Schrader has garnered this kind of critical praise: FIRST REFORMED won dozens of international awards in 2018 and found its way on to practically every best-of-the-year-list. Ethan Hawkes stars as a priest going through a crisis in faith. He feels responsible for his son’s death in the Iraq war while simultaneously falling under the spell of a depressed environmental activist and his wife. His desperation leads this man of god to plan a monstrous deed – with parallels to Schraders most famous creation, TAXI DRIVER Travis Bickle, being intentional.
