2013 Academy Award Nominee! Best Actor (Joaquin Phoenix); Best Supporting Actor (Philip Seymour Hoffman); Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adam)


“One of the great movies of the year - ambitious, challenging, and creatively hot-blooded.” – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

“It is a movie about the lure and folly of greatness that comes as close as anything I've seen recently to being a great movie.” – A. O. Scott, New York Times

“Restores your faith in film as an art form … The Master is nirvana for movie lovers.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone


A strikingly inventive and ambitious portrait of drifters and seekers in post-World War II America, The Master tells the epic story of a Navy veteran (Oscar-nominee Joaquin Phoenix) who arrives home from war unsettled and uncertain of his future—until he is tantalized by a controversial “self-actualization” group called The Cause and its charismatic leader (Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman). Written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood, Magnolia, Boogie Nights), The Master is an exhilarating, one-of-a-kind drama about the American heart of darkness , gorgeously shot on 70mm, co-starring Oscar-nominee Amy Adams. Featuring an original score by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. (Dir. by Paul Thomas Anderson, 2012, 138 min., Rated R, Weinstein Company) HD Digital
