First Reformed – Trailer 1 – Ethan Hawke

First Reformed First Reformed centres around Toller, a former military chaplain (Ethan Hawke), who is wracked by grief over the death of his son. Mary (Amanda Seyfried) is a member of his church whose husband, a radical environmentalist, commits suicide, setting the plot in motion.

This looks an intriguing drama from writer/director Paul Schrader, but it all felt rather weird when media quotes started comparing this to Scorsese’s Taxi Driver… and it’s also a rare new film which is shot in 4:3.

As least it can’t be worse than Dog Eat Dog.

First Reformed
is released in the US on May 18th, but as of yet there’s no UK date.

Also stars: Cedric the Entertainer, Michael Gaston, Van Hansis, Victoria Hill
