Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Tahar Rahim and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in this engrossing portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history.
The biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Mara), 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 (Phoenix), 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.
