Sorry, but it was in the states last spring and summer, limited to "art houses." I saw Agora when it first came out in NYC and loved Weisz' performance as Hypatia. I thought the film was beautifully shot, a bit uneven, but a wonderful exploration of modern themes in a historical context. But it is a fictionalized version of Hypatia's life. For more about the historical Hypatia, I recommend a very readable biography Hypatia of Alexandria by Maria Dzielska (Harvard University Press, 1995 reviewed here.) I also have a series of posts on the historical events and characters in the film at my blog - not a movie review, just a "reel vs. real" discussion.

That reminds me that I need to finish watching that movie. I started it but was interrupted.

That looks pretty epic. Is it going to be in the states?
