Mary Magdalene (R) 120 minutes

MARY MAGDALENE  MOVIE (R) Joaquin Phoenix as Christ. Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene is one of the most transformative yet misunderstood women in history. Alternately vilified as a sinner and canonized as a saint. For the first time, the incredible story of Mary Magdalene is told through her own eyes. As the free-spirited Mary flees the marriage her family has arranged for her, she finds refuge and purpose in a radical new movement led by the charismatic, rabble-rousing preacher Jesus. The sole woman among the band of disciples, Mary defies the prejudices of a patriarchal society as she undergoes a profound spiritual awakening and finds herself at the center of an earth-shaking historical moment. Boldly challenges perceived wisdom. A moving and rapturous account of a woman who risked everything to follow her faith.
