Tonight, come catch one of the best movies from 2012 in its natural 35mm on the big screen. A thinly veiled dramatic account of Scientology’s beginnings, Joaquin Phoenix plays Freddie Quell, a WWII veteran troubled by more than just the war. A vagabond with no prospects, he comes across a charismatic man (Philip Seymour Hoffman) who leads a newly founded movement which proclaims to have the answers to all. Quickly integrating himself into the group’s followers, Freddie undergoes the movement’s teachings and attempts to “cure” his inner demons through their methods. Needless to say, it’ll take a lot of work. Also plays on Dec. 28.
