'Mary Magdalene' film reviewThe period drama 'Mary Magdalene' is set long ago in the Holy Land where we meet the young woman of the title, played by Rooney Mara. She joins a new social movement with a charismatic leader at its head who promises to change the world. And he does. We know the story… but not from Mary's perspective.
Mary Magdalene (2018) was directed by Garth Davis, best known for his work on the hit TV series Top of the Lake (2013) and on a big screen title Lion (2016).
Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett wrote the script for Mary Magdalene (2018). This is their big screen debut, as screenwriters.
Mary Magdalene (2018) is, of course, about the life of a woman (and by some religions -a saint) who traveled alongside Jesus Christ.
Rooney Mara is playing the role of Mary, Joaquin Phoenix is portraying Jesus Christ, and Chiwetel Ejiofor appears in the role of Peter.
Mary Magdalene (2018) premiered on March 16, 2018, and it is having a very bad reviews from the critics.
