When Gnomeo (James McAvoy), the far too square and colorless hero who still looks like the son of C. Everett Koop, tries to infiltrate a flower shop, his comrade, Benny (Matt Lucas), speaks to him over a walkie-talkie using Gnomeo’s code name, Tiny Dancer. During a news report about how the garden gnomes of London are being mysteriously snatched, a photo montage of missing gnomes includes an Elton John gnome seated at a glittery piano.

Why didn’t Jesus have any female Apostles? Well, he kinda did, in Mary Magdalene — technically, Mary of Magdala, the small village in Galilee she was from (maybe); or Mary the Magdalene — who in the contradictory books of the New Testament is either the only person to witness or one of a group of women to witness Jesus’ resurrection. So, why isn’t there a Gospel of Mary? Well, there kinda is, though it was only rediscovered in the late 19th century and is considered to belong to the Apocrypha,

Mary Magdalene review
Brimming with beatific melancholy, this most recent entry into cinema’s mixed bag of Biblical adaptations is a visually heart-stopping, but ultimately light-footed, exploration of Jesus of Nazareth’s final days through the wide eyes of his first and only female apostle.
Rooney Mara’s Mary of Magdala is a young women adrift in her life — something Davis captures wonderfully with the Malick-esque opening sequence of her body alone amidst a fathomless expanse of sun-dappled ocean blue. Throughout her story she will be submerged once, then twice more; one dunking by a patriarchal gaggle of male family members in order to drown out her unwomanly wilfulness, and once by the son of God himself, in a baptismal rebirth of spirit.
