Agora


Who has seen this film? It stars Rachel Weisz as Hypatia, a pagan mathmatician and philosopher in an increasingly Christian 4th century world. I haven't seen it yet and I'm not allowed to watch it because my wife says it's on my Christmas list - not that that is a gurentee I'll get it for Christmas.

So, if you've seen it, is it any good?

Never even heard of it but it sounds fascinating.

That would explain why I had not heard about the film previously.

I think it had a minor run at the cinema in the UK at the same time as Centurian. I wanted to go and see it, but by the time I'd found out about it it had already left the cinemas.
