Backyard Cinema Presents: The Master

Paul Thomas Anderson's latest film on the silver screen

Starring Joaquin Phoenix and Philip Seymour Hoffman, this is a striking portrait of drifters and seekers in post WWII America. Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master unfolds the journey of a Naval veteran (Phoenix) who arrives home from war, unsettled and uncertain of his future. He is tantalised by 'The Cause' (a thinly-disguised fictionalisation of Scientology), and its charismatic leader (Hoffman). With an atmospheric score by Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood, this is a fascinating exploration of the power of the cult and the roots of a controversial modern religion. '...it sees Anderson on captivating form as a director who is able to surprise and impress with scene after scene.' - Time Out (five stars). General admission.
