Tortured by the loss of a son he encouraged to enlist in the armed forces, a church minister and ex-military chaplain struggles with his faith when a pregnant woman and her radical environmentalist husband come to him for counselling. The couple is conflicted about bringing a child into the world. They reach out to the minister for advice and comfort. Reeling from both the loss of his own child and a chain of unexpected events, the clergyman finds his faith tested.
In FIRST REFORMED, Paul Schrader returns to a subject he knows so well: the religion of his childhood, the strict Calvinist Christian Reformed Church. Directing with consummate control and simplicity, Schrader has composed a film of classic rigour and stately grace, where undercurrents of uncontrollable emotions threaten to break apart an orderly life.

Paul Schrader, USA, 2018, 113 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Ethan Hawke, Amanda Seyfried, Philip Ettinger, Cedric Kyles, Victoria Hill.
