Starring Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim, Mary Magdalene is billed as “an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history.”
The biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Mara), a young woman in search of a new way of living. Constricted by the hierarchies of the day, Mary defies her traditional family to join a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Phoenix).
She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem…
Written by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett, the film will be released in the UK on March 16th 2018
