Hail Mary

Hail Mary

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

In Jean-Luc Godard's modern retelling of the Virgin birth, Mary is a student who plays basketball and works at her father's petrol station; Joseph is an earnest dropout who drives a cab. The angel Gabriel must school Joseph to accept Mary's pregnancy, while Mary comes to terms with God's plan through meditations that are sometimes angry and usually punctuated by elemental images of the sun, moon, clouds, flowers, and water.

Denounced by the Pope and banned and boycotted worldwide, this film by French master director Jean-Luc Godard translates the Virgin Birth into contemporary terms, with Mary as a teenage gas-station attendant.

Cast: Juliette Binoche, Myriem Roussel, Thierry Rode

Lives up to Godard's previous work. Thought provoking. Controversial. Revolutionary.
