One of the most controversial films of all time by one of the world's most provocative directors. HAIL MARY is Jean-Luc Godard's retelling of the story of the virgin birth, transposed to modern day and filled with the mundane aspects of any teenage girl's life. Punctuated by beautiful cinematography and a lush score, it is a surprisingly heartfelt and reverential film by a master filmmaker.
The short The Book of Mary was originally released with the feature as a companion piece. Directed by long-time Godard collaborator Anne-Marie Miéville, it tells the story of the break-up of a marriage as seen through the eyes of the couple's young daughter.
