The film stars Creator/JoaquinPhoenix (in his first film role after a two year hiatus) as Freddie Quell, a misguided young man who, after demobilizing from WorldWarII, falls under the sway of charismatic cult leader Lancaster Dodd, played by Creator/PhilipSeymourHoffman and his wife Peggy played by Creator/AmyAdams. From there on, the film becomes a character study between Dodd and Freddie as their relationship varies between "Leader and Follower", "Teacher and Student", "Father and Son" and "Master and Slave".
