Transmission Films


Australia! We’re giving away tickets to see the biblical biopic Mary Magdalene, in cinemas from March 22!

Starring Rooney Mara as the titular biblical figure and three-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus of Nazareth, Mary Magdalene endeavours to provide audiences with a humanistic portrait of a woman seeking a new way of life in the midst of constricting hierarchies.

The film is directed by acclaimed Australian filmmaker Garth Davis (Lion) and also stars Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim. Be sure to mark that date: Mary Magdalene will arrive in Australian cinemas on March 22.

MARY MAGDALENE is an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history. The biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman in search of a new way of living. Constricted by the hierarchies of the day, Mary defies her traditional family to join a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix). She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem. Written by Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett, MARY MAGDALENE also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim.
