This tale of female empowerment reveals the untold story of the woman who had the strength to go against her family, and give up everything to follow Jesus.
There have been many different stories about Mary Magdalene throughout time – this is the true story of the woman who was recently recognised by the Vatican as the Apostle of Apostles.
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.
Starring Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Lion, Carol), Joaquin Phoenix (Gladiator, Her, Walk the Line) and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, Doctor Strange), Mary Magdalene will be released in Australian cinemas on March 22.
This competition will end at midnight on Friday 9 March.
