The biblical drama places Mary at the heart of the greatest origin story with Rooney Mara starring as Mary Magdalene and Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim.

It’s the second feature film from Victorian Director Garth Davis who once again teamed up with Melbourne DOP Greig Fraser following their successful collaboration on Lion.
