The Master

Film Father

After World War II, a hedonistic ex-GI Freddie (Joaquin Phoenix) falls in with a charismatic self-help leader (Philipp Seymour Hoffman) known as The Master, and his constituents.  The Master’s followers see Freddie as someone they can change for the better.  But will Freddie, instead, be a detriment to The Cause?  Some have speculated Hoffman’s character as being similar to an L. Ron Hubbard-style leader.
