Hailed as the greatest film of the 21st century by The Guardian, Paul Thomas Anderson's ('Phantom Thread') epic drama stars an Oscar winning Daniel Day Lewis as Daniel Plainview, an oilman on a ruthless quest for wealth during South California's oil boom of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Using his adopted son HW to project a trustworthy, family-man image, Plainview cons local landowners into selling him their valuable properties for a pittance. However, local preacher Eli Sunday (Paul Dano) suspects Plainview's motives and intentions, starting a slow-burning feud that threatens both their lives.
