Filmmaker Paul Thomas Anderson has released a new teaser clip for his highly ambitious feature, “The Master” which stars Joaquin Phoenix, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Adams, Jesse Plemons, Kevin J. O’Connor.
Set in America in the years following World War II, a charismatic intellectual (Philip Seymour Hoffman) launches a faith-based organization and taps a young drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) as his right-hand man. But as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the onetime vagabond finds himself questioning the belief system he has embraced, and his mentor.
Have a look the teaser clip entitled “She Wrote Me A Letter” below.
The clip hits the web right after the news that a surprise 70mm screening of the film has been set up for tonight (Aug 16th) in Chicago’s Music Box Theater.
