A movie which is based on the philosopher, mathematician, and astronomer named Hypathia. Hypathia's true history is somewhat unknown due to different stories about her life and death and much information of her life works lost in time and during fires at the Alexandria Library. This movie creates a visual spectactular of Ancient Alexandria and uses one version of Hypathias story. Rachel Weisz plays Hypathia and does the job well. Agora is rich in religious history and stirs conflict on what actually happened in those days. The movies creates the feeling that the Pagans and the Christians are always fighting and Hypathia is stuck in the middle. While others fight in the streets, she focuses on her teaching and astronomy. If this story is close to the truth then Hypathia was truly a brave woman, a great philosopher and someone who believed in equality. This movie presents us with a unique story and hope for knowledge even though we know all hope is lost.
