Movie Preview: Rachel Weisz in Agora


The story being told in Agora is so interesting, it would be a shame if the movie itself turns out to be lame, but so far I feel kind of lukewarm about the trailer. The film is set in Roman Egypt in the fourth century A.D. and stars Rachel Weisz as "astrologer-philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria, who fights to save the collected wisdom of the ancient world. Her slave Davus ([Max] Minghella) is torn between his love for his mistress and the possibility of gaining his freedom by joining the rising tide of Christianity."

I adore Rachel Weisz and I hope this movie turns out to be the epic, dramatic tale it's striving to be. I've liked some of director Alejandro Amenábar's previous projects, like Abre los ojos (of which Vanilla Sky is an English-language adaptation), so maybe Agora will be really cool. There's no set release date for the US just yet, but to take a peek at the trailer,

I don't like Rachel Weisz. She's another beige, boring actress that hollywood is forcing down our throats. however I did a project on person like Hypatia in middle school, and would be interested in seeing an actual film about her.

I love Rachel and I love this sort of period piece, but the trailer isn't amazing me either. I'll probably see it though.
