MARY MAGDALENE

Perhaps this quote from RogerEbert.com say all that needs to be said:

“For centuries, the Greatest Story Ever Told had it wrong. Mary Magdalene, one of the most recognizable women in the Gospels, was not a prostitute, but an Apostle just like Peter, Matthew, or Judas. It was Pope Gregory back in 591 who started this misrepresentation, which wasn’t fully addressed by the Vatican until 2016, when they restored Mary back to her place as one of the most important people in Jesus’ circle. That is an extraordinary correction… and (this is) an extraordinary film.  Written by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett, Mary Magdalene is about the dedication of followers and anguish of a messiah, as presented through a woman’s experience… The film compels you to look past previous iterations, to engage the overall tale for its bizarre beauty: a radical movement, led by a tormented man of select words, who speaks of a kingdom that human beings can make a reality. As someone who watched it twice in 24 hours, Mary Magdalene moved me in a way that no previous film about Christianity ever has.”  – RogerEbert.com.  

Rooney Mara stars with Joaquin Phoenix and Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave).  Rated R for some bloody and disturbing images.  120 minutes.
