Director Garth Davis's feminist take on the bible story casts Rooney Mara as key apostle Mary Magdalene, a dutiful daughter happily taking her place in the Judean community. However, her refusal to marry and increasing devotion leads her into conflict with her family... until the arrival of Jesus (Joaquin Phoenix). She becomes a favoured pupil and the one who truly understands his faith among her fellow apostles, including Peter (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Judas (Tahar Rahim).
