Mary Magdalene is 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 (Rooney 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 (Joaquin 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, Mary Magdalene also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim.
Directed by DGA Award winner Garth Davis (Lion) and produced by See-Saw Films’ Iain Canning (Lion, The King’s Speech) and Emile Sherman (Lion, The King’s Speech), Mary Magdalene is the latest collaboration from the team behind last year’s $140 million worldwide box office success and six-time Academy Award-nominated film Lion alongside Animal Kingdom producer Liz Watts.
Mara is known for her work in films like The Social Network and Carol, as well as playing Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Phoenix is known for films like Gladiator and Her, as well as playing Johnny Cash in Walk the Line.
