THE NATIVITY STORY chronicles the arduous journey of two people, Mary and Joseph, a miraculous pregnancy, and the birth of Jesus. This dramatic and compelling story comes to life in a heart-warming film starring Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes (WHALE RIDER) as Mary, Oscar Isaac (GUERILLA) as Joseph, Ciaran Hinds as King Herod (MUNICH, ROME), and Academy Award nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG) as Elizabeth, the mother of John the Baptist.
Exploring the relationship between Joseph and Mary in the two years preceding the birth of Jesus, THE NATIVITY STORY is a beautifully uplifting film which is biblically faithful, historically authentic and visually stunning.
THE NATIVITY STORY is directed by Catherine Hardwicke (THIRTEEN, LORDS OF DOGTOWN) from a screenplay by Mike Rich (FINDING FORRESTER, THE ROOKIE) and produced by Wyck Godfrey, with production designer Stefano Ortolani bringing to life the authentic look and feel of the film.
