MARY (2005)

Film details


An egotistical film-maker makes a biblical picture about Jesus, with himself in the lead role, and in which he depicts Mary Magdalene as a proper disciple in a rivalry with Peter. The actress playing Mary has a religious experience and goes on to Jerusalem after filming has ended. The film causes a sensation, and a year later, now hosting a television show looking at the historical truth behind Jesus, Ted goes in search of Marie, trying to persuade her to appear on the show.
