Full Trailer For AGORA Starring Rachel Weisz


I know very little about this movie but it looks like it could be a great film. It has got some great production value behind. Apparently it still doesn't have a distributor, which seems crazy to me for the fact this looks really good. Of course I haven't seen it yet, so I am just going off by what I saw in the trailer below. The film was shown at The Cannes Film Festival this year and the reviews for it have been decent.

4th century A.D. Egypt under the Roman Empire... Violent religious upheaval in the streets of Alexandria spills over into the city's famous Library. Trapped inside its walls, the brilliant astronomer Hypatia and her disciples fight to save the wisdom of the Ancient World... Among them, the two men competing for her heart: The witty, privileged Orestes and Davus, Hypatia's young slave, who is torn between his secret love for her and the freedom he knows can be his if he chooses to join the unstoppable surge of the Christians.

Check out the Alejandro Amenabar directed film trailer below, and tell us what you think.
