Written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, MAGNOLIA, BOOGIE NIGHTS), this story stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (CAPOTE) and Joaquin Phoenix (WALK THE LINE). Set in America in the years following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Phoenix) as his right-hand man. But as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor. Amy Adams co-stars as Hoffman's wife and business partner.
