USA | 2007 | 158 Minutes | Paul Thomas Anderson

Daniel Day-Lewis stars in Paul Thomas Anderson's multi-Oscar® nominated historical drama, a visually stunning and enthralling exploration of greed, capitalism and violence.

Based on Upton Sinclair's novel "Oil", and set at the forefront of the American frontier, the film follows pioneer Daniel Plainview (Day-Lewis, in an Academy Award® winning performance) on his rise to becoming a monomaniacal oil baron. Paul Dano co-stars in a wonderfully unctuous performance as preacher Eli Sunday, whose theology can't compete with Plainview's overwhelming greed.  Also featuring a gorgeous, anachronistic soundtrack by Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood.
