Director: Paul Schrader
Starring: Amanda Seyfried, Ethan Hawke

Opening to rave reviews at the Venice Film Festival last year, Schrader's latest film is a richly complex, beautifully acted and stunningly shot existential thriller which follows a priest who undergoes a crisis of faith after he fails to prevent a tragedy in his parish. Featuring a career-best performance from Ethan Hawke, Schrader's latest film is a moving, thoughtful and engaging cinematic experience on a par with his best work as a writer and director.
