From the writer of Taxi Driver, comes the critically acclaimed drama THE FIRST REFORMED on DVD & Blu-ray Aug. 21

From legendary writer-director Paul Schrader (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver), First Reformed arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital) and DVD on August 21 from Lionsgate. Academy Award nominee Ethan Hawke (Best Supporting Actor, Boyhood, 2014) is “better than ever” (IndieWire, Eric Kohn) alongside Amanda Seyfried and, in a powerful dramatic turn, Cedric the Entertainer. The film, Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, is being hailed as “an epiphany” (The New York Times, A.O. Scott) and “one of the mind-bending treasures of recent cinema” (The New Yorker, Richard Brody). The First Reformed Blu-ray and DVD release includes a never-before-seen featurette and audio commentary with director Paul Schrader and will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Reverend Ernst Toller (Hawke) is a solitary, middle-aged parish pastor at a struggling church. When a pregnant parishioner (Seyfried) asks the reverend to counsel her husband, Toller is plunged into his own tormented past-and equally despairing future-until he finds redemption.
