Mary Magdalene

The film Mary Magdalene was supported by Pinewood Digital.

A Biblical drama with a stylish high-art look and a timely feminist angle, Mary Magdalene sets out to right historical wrongs by putting Jesus of Nazareth's most famous female follower back at the heart of his story. With his sophomore feature, Australian director Garth Davis (Lion) claimed he wanted to make a "relatable, relevant and contemporary" Bible story that speaks to believers and nonbelievers alike. It stars Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix, their second screen pairing following Gus Van Sant's Sundance premiere Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot.
