Mary Magdalene - First-look photo released

Mary Magdalene

UNIVERSAL Pictures has released the first image from Garth Davis’ Mary Magdalene, 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 (played by 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.

It will be released in UK cinemas on March 16, 2018.
