4th century AD Egypt under the Roman Empire... Violent religious upheaval in the streets of Alexandria spills over into the city's famous Library. Trapped inside its walls, the brilliant astronomer Hypatia (Rachel Weisz) and her disciples fight to save the wisdom of the Ancient World... Among them, the two men competing for her heart: the witty, privileged Orestes (Oscar Isaac) and Davus (Max Minghella), Hypatia's young slave, who is torn between his secret love for her and the freedom he knows can be his if he chooses to join the unstoppable surge of the Christians.

Shot on location in Malta, multi-Goya award winning film AGORA, stars Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz (BOND 23) and Max Minghella (HOW TO LOSE FRIENDS & ALIENATE PEOPLE) and is directed by Alejandro Amenabar (THE SEA INSIDE).
