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.

Being shown for the first time in Australia and following the global success of his film 'Lion', award winning Australian Director Garth Davis has again teamed up with SmileHigh to present an opportunity for movie goers to get up close and personal and see his new film.

Garth will give his personal insights and comments before the movie. His own words speak volumes....
“...this film is more unique and poetically deep - but thematically, explores that LOVE is the key to true freedom, not revolt, and in that a deeply felt film… so should connect to people that are supporting SmileHigh I would have thought… and religious material will always stir up the nest.”
