Director: Garth Davis

Starring: Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, Chiwetel Ejiofor

Release: March 30th, 2018

I adore each one of these actors, I can’t think of anyone better suited for these parts, but I’m still not sure this is the passion film I’ve been waiting for.  What I want is reality.  Portray Jesus as a guy who means well but who gets drunk with power.  Show him having sex with Mary.  Make his death about local politics.  Basically, tell the story how it most likely happened, based on all we’ve observed of human nature through recorded time.  If this movie approaches that, I’ll stand up and applaud.
