Mary Magdalene, the first film by Garth Davis since his Academy Award-nominated Lion, boasts an incredible cast including Academy Award nominee Rooney Mara (Carol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and Academy Award nominee Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line, Her).  

Set in the Holy Land in the first century, Mary Magdalene is the story of a young woman who leaves her small fishing village and family to join a new movement. Inspired by its charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, and his teachings, Mary sets out with the disciples on the journey to Jerusalem, where she finds herself at the centre of the founding story of Christianity. Mary Magdalene brings a unique and fascinating character to the fore and places her at the heart of the greatest origin story of all. Mary Magdalene is produced by Iain Canning, Emile Sherman and Liz Watts.

Mary Magdalene also features Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) and Tahar Rahim (A Prophet), with cinematography by Greig Fraser (Rogue One, Lion) and a script by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett.

Garth Davis, Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara will all attend this gala screening of the film.
