The Master

The Master

The late Philip Seymour Hoffman gives the performance of his career as cult leader Lancaster Dodd – a barely concealed facsimile of Scientology’s L. Ron Hubbard. When Dodd casts his spell over war damaged veteran Freddie Quell (Joaquin Phoenix), the two men embark on a journey together that may end in psychological disintegration.
