Mary Magdalene

Mary Magdalene

Two-time Oscar nominee Rooney Mara (Carol, The Social Network) gives a powerful performance as Mary, an independent young woman who rebels against the path that her family expects her to follow.

Women in her small fishing village, in Palestine two thousand years ago, are supposed to get married and obey their husbands. But Mary wants something different. She leaves everything behind to follow Jesus (three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix, Walk the Line), a wandering Jewish teacher who performs miracles and talks about a new way of living.

Unlike the other men in her life, Jesus treats Mary like an equal, listening to her questions and encouraging her. And she begins to understand what none of his other followers know yet: that his message isn’t about political power, but about love, compassion and self-sacrifice.

MARY MAGDALENE is a moving, inspirational drama that re-imagines ‘the greatest story ever told’ through a woman’s eyes. The Daily Mail called it “A fascinating, invigorating movie”, while Total Film said that "Phoenix and Mara offer mesmerising performances".

Written by Helen Edmundson and Philip Goslett, directed by Garth Davis (Lion), the film also stars Academy Award® nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) and BAFTA Rising Star nominee Tahar Rahim (A Prophet). The DVD and Blu-ray™ releases come with bonus features “Mary Magdalene: The Cast” and “Directing Mary Magdalene”, which offer a look behind the scenes at the making of this beautiful film.
