Aro Recommended Agora


Spain 2009, 122 minutes
Dir. Alejandro Amenabar
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / Girl-centric

Topics: Period - A.D., Religion.


Aroview: A strident and admirable account of Greek scholar Hypatia, whose principles and pagan beliefs attracted the ire of Christians in 4th century Alexandria.

After years of project development, Spanish auteur Alejandro Amenabar bolsters the trappings of the lavish historical epic with characteristic integrity as he ambitiously harmonizes its weighty astronomical and religious themes. Rachel Weisz is superb in the key role of the feisty feminine philosopher, leading a cast of relatively unknown thesps who collectively add to the production's rigourous quest for authenticity. In English.
