Let’s watch the latest movie trailer of The Master, the upcoming drama movie written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson:
“A charismatic intellectual (Philip Seymour Hoffman) launches a religious organization following World War II. A drifter (Joaquin Phoenix) becomes his right-hand man but as the faith begins to gain a fervent following, the drifter finds himself questioning the belief system and his mentor.”
The film is starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix, Jesse Plemons, David Warshofsky, Amy Adams, Rami Malek.
Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard served in the U.S. Navy in World War II and after his release from founded his controversial sect in 1952, the same year as the religion in the script. And Hoffman does share a physical resemblance to Hubbard. So is The Master a movie about Hubbard and Scientology?
