“Hushed, deliberate and realised with considerable care and beauty”


A moving drama directed by Garth Davis (Lion), Mary Magdalene is based on the life of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history. Mary (Rooney Mara) is a young woman struggling to conform to the traditions of her time. In defiance of her family, she joins a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix). Her quest for an authentic life leads to Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.
