Stunningly beautiful, complex film brings this historical person and the tensions of the time to life for us through the painstaking research and imaginations of the filmmaking team and the vision of the gifted director. I bought the dvd, now I'm going to buy the soundtrack.

I have been raving about this movie to all my friends. I thought that Hypatia, the main character, was probably fictional, as she was too wondrous - a woman for all the ages. But, though I have a masters degree in psychology, I did not know about her, and, after researching, found she was very real. The movie fictionalizes very little, but uses drama very well to depict the times and the deep respect with which Hypatia, the great philosopher, astronomer, was given by male leaders in her community - the notable exception, the Christian leadership which was emerging in Alexandria, Egypt in 4th Century AD. Alexandria was not so much Arab until about 700 AD when they invaded. It is the highest type of love according to the Greeks - AGAPE. It is incredible to me that males could write and direct this lovely movie, so respectful of her, so beloved by the leading male characters in the movie. My new favorite actor is Max Minghella. Full out, focused, deeply emotional performance. Beverly Davis Mays

Well done movie. Great visuals, direction, story, costumes, and sets. "Agora" tells of the last days of the Roman Empire when the Christian church was rising in power. The movie shows how some members of the Christian church went violently against idol whorshipers, pagans, and the Jews living in Alexandria, Egypt. The Christians burn the Alexndrian Library and it looks like they burn Jewish scrolls also. I believe this is the time when the Gnostic Writings are hidden in Egypt. Bishop Cyril reminds me of the current Iranian President in his vigerous hatred of the Jews and others outside his circle. It could be compared to Hitler and the Nazis against the Jews. Stunning movie!
