As Christianity gains steam in Roman Egypt toward the end of the fourth century A.D., a young slave (Max Minghella) weighs his desire for freedom against his growing love for his mistress (Rachel Weisz), an atheist as well as a professor of philosophy. Alejandro Amenábar (The Others) directs this epic drama based on the life of Hypatia of Alexandria, a noted Greek scholar and mathematician. Rupert Evans co-stars.

Rachel Weisz plays her part beautifully - with a strong supporting cast - in this quasi-historical movie. The film has a powerful ending but it can be a bit disturbing to watch. Much of the movie revolves around hatred, bigotry, and vandalism.
