Synopsis

Paul Thomas Anderson continues his investigation of flawed characters (MAGNOLIA, THERE WILL BE BLOOD) with this powerful story of the relationship between Freddie, a Second World War ex-soldier, and Lancaster, the larger than life founder of a new religious cult who uses his charm and charisma to beget and manipulate followers. Their friendship is bizarre and volatile with Lancaster’s sophistication set against Freddie’s troubled and violent psyche. A glorious, ebullient study of characters outside conformity.
