Director Alejandro Amenabar is bringing us an historical drama movie that revolves around astrologer-philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria (Rachel Weisz) and her relationship with her slave Davus (Max Minghella). Here below the first movie trailer of Agora thanks to Slashfilm:
391 Anno Domini
The world is going to change forever.
For a woman Hypatia was benefiting from an incredible freedom in this ancient time, though this was played against her at the end… We could say that she was an early feminist, a courageous and intelligent woman whose life was defying the prejudices of her time!
Director Amenabar went to the Island of Malta in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea to film Agora. Huge sets were built for the occasion. So well built, that we will feel like transported back to Antic Egypt!
