Join us on Monday, July 22nd for a special screening in celebration of The Feast Day of St. Mary Magdalene!
Set in the Holy Land in the first century, 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, 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 religious law 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.
Starring Mara Rooney, Joaquin Phoenix and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Directed by Garth Davis (the Oscar nominated Lion).
