From the director of ‘Lion’, Garth Davis, reunites with Rooney Mara to tell the incredible story of ‘Mary Magdalene’, with Chiwetel Ejiofor as Peter and Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus, which comes at a watershed moment for the film industry.
Conceived to be an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history, Garth Davis gives one of the best-known stories a different spin with this tale of Jesus Christ as seen through the eyes of the titular Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara).
It follows Mary’s journey, from her first encounter with Jesus (Joaquin Phoenix), through to his death and resurrection, hinting at the way she was perceived by the disciples and her role in spreading the Gospel.
