Mary Magdalene (12A)
Dir: Garth Davis
Cast: Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Chiwetel Ejiofor
US, 2018, 120 mins
An attempt to give a feminist slant to biblical history through a look at the life of Jesus’ companion Mary Magdalene. Sincere but perhaps a touch too reverential, it’s still a refreshing change from past films on the subject.
