The drama, which is already getting major Oscar buzz, is loosely based on the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. That could make The Master particularly controversial in Germany, where many consider Scientology a dangerous cult. German audiences will get their first look at Anderson’s drama this weekend, when The Master unspools at the 70mm Festival in Schauburg Karlsruhe.
Senator picked up The Master after its North American premiere at the Toronto Film Festival last month.
Senator also nabbed German rights to Yaron Zilberman‘s classical music drama A Late Quartet, which stars Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Imogene Poots and the documentary No Place on Earth from Janet Tobias, which looks at the extraordinary true tale of five Jewish families who spent nearly a year and a half in underground caves in Ukraine to escape the Nazis.
