How so? What view does the Talmud hold of her?

It seems the Talmudic view would be that she was an adulteress (and perhaps that is where the prostitute came from). whereas she may simply have been from Magdela: "sorry about slandering you for centuries"

Mary Magdalen was so called either from Magdala near Tiberias, on the west shore of Galilee, or possibly from a Talmudic expression meaning "curling women's hair," which the Talmud explains as of an adulteress.

It actually sounds like it might be an interesting movie.
