Universal Pictures UK has detailed the upcoming Blu-ray release of Garth Davis’ new film Mary Magdalene (2018). Starring Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Tahar Rahim, Ariane Labed and Ryan Corr, the release will hit UK stores on July 23rd.
Mary Magdalene is a genuine and humanistic portrait of one of the most mysterious, misinterpreted and spiritual individuals in history. The pious biopic details the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman who seeks a new way to live her life in constricted times.
Hindered by the traditional and strict lifestyles of the period, Mary defies her family rule to live a new life guided by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth (Joaquin Phoenix). Mary soon finds herself at home within the movement and at the core of the quest to Jerusalem.
