MARY MAGDALENE

LATEST REVIEWS
'MARY MAGDALENE' TRAILER
The story of Mary Magdalene - from the Academy Award producers of The King's Speech. Set in the Holy Land in the first century C.E., a young woman leaves her small fishing village and traditional family behind to join a radical new social movement. At its head is a charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, who promises that the world is changing. Mary is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the day. As the notoriety of the group spread and more are drawn to follow Jesus’ inspirational message, Mary’s spiritual journey places her at the heart of a story that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.

Mary Magdalene - A tedious reframing of an important female religious icon
MARY MAGDALENE
A tedious reframing of an important female religious icon
What should have been a powerful film about an important woman in the founding of Christianity misses the mark for the most part. This tedious and humourless film doesn’t dig anywhere deep enough.
