A Great Historical Film..

A historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hope of pursuing freedom while falling in love with his mistress, the famous philosophy and mathematics professor Hypatia of Alexandria. Agora benefits from an incredible perfomance from Rachel Weisz in the title role and Oscar Isaac in a supporting role long before X-Men and Star Wars. The acting from the rest of the cast is also great, the settings and the locations are outstanding and the overall direction superb. Overall a great movie in general even if i didn't like the ending and the fact that some "masks" were thrown down from religions and it's people. (8/10)

Powerful, intelligent and ultimately tragic depicting the battle and ultimate end of The Age of Reason by the hands of Ignorant Dogma

Powerful, intelligent and ultimately tragic depicting the battle and ultimate end of The Age of Reason by the hands of Ignorant Dogma. A Very disturbing ending and that is good. It leaves you stunned and torn inside for days after. I rated Agora 9/10 on IMDb. Learn more and add it to your Watchlist

Just Brilliant

Just brilliant - imo Agora rivals Gladiator, or at least plays in the same league. Superb setting, directing and acting, and on top one of the few movies which give us an idea how life in ancient Roman times (possibly) was.

Rachel Weisz is imo one of the best contemporary actresses and one who can stand in very different movies and can play very different characters - from light comedies to avant-garde, and ofc she shines in Agora again with brilliance.

Agora is a historical drama set in Roman Egypt. The movie got two main themes: the life of Hypatia of Alexandria, a (historical) woman dedicated to philosophy and mathematics, and the (bloody) rise of the Christian belief. These themes combined we get the eternal fight of humanity and rationality against superstition and religious fundamentalism.

If you are interested in ancient times this movie is a must see.
