I've actually read bits and pieces of the script online and from what I can tell, it is and isn't a movie a about Scientology movie. The PSH character occasionally speaks in Hubbard quotes and his religion is almost identical to the earliest form of Scientology. PTA has done a lot of research on this guy and it shows. However the script at its core isI more about Joaquin's ****ed up journey to find himself and his purpose in a post war world.s
Joaquin's great, I hope this is his year for the oscars.
