Session Times



Ethan Hawke stars as Ernst Toller, a reverend in a remote upstate New York community where his stoic, minimalist sermons are mostly looked over for the nearby mega-church. Toller's quiet life is changed when he begins to counsel new parishioners Michael and Mary (Phillip Ettinger and Amanda Seyfried), a young couple whose marriage is breaking down. Michael, a radical environmental activist, is consumed by the idea that humans have brought on an apocalypse and when he asks questions that can't be answered, Toller's own path is irrevocably changed.

★★★★★ “A confounding stunner of a movie ... richly deserves our full, serious attention.”
— Vox
★★★★ "Powerful and beautifully made."
— The Guardian
"This film is an epiphany. Ethan Hawke is too."
— The New York Times
