Paul Schrader

Master Gardener

107' - 2022 - Thriller - Dialogue: English
Director: Paul Schrader Composer: Dev Hynes With: Joel Edgerton, Sigourney Weaver, Quintessa Swindell
After First Reformed and The Card Counter, Master Gardener is Paul Schrader's latest variation on the quest for redemption for lost souls.
A meticulous horticulturist who is devoted to tending the grounds of a beautiful estate and pandering to his employer, the wealthy dowager.
“Following First Reformed and The Card Counter, the final film in Paul Schrader’s redemption trilogy (is) another stately study of a monastic man with a dark past who survives via ritual. (...) Austerely written, directed, and performed, Master Gardener is a slow burn.” - Total Film
