Damaris Media have today released a free ‘Mary Magdelene’ companion booklet for church groups ahead of the movie release on March 16.
The Mary Magdalene movie is a powerful, fictional portrait of one of the most misunderstood figures in biblical history. The film tells the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman in search of a new way to live. Defying the gender inequalities and traditions of the day she joins a movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix). She soon finds a place for herself alongside Jesus and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem.
Written by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett, and directed by Garth Davis, Mary Magdalene also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim.
The companion booklet offers an insight into the making of the film, as well as questions and reflections for church groups wanting to engage with it more deeply.
