Story: Spanish director Alejandro Amenabar directs this sweeping English-language historical epic set in Roman Egypt in the fourth century AD. Rachel Weisz stars as leading astrologer/philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria, who fights to protect the collected wisdom of the ancient world from religious nay-sayers. As the Christians resort to superstition, threats, witch-hunts, violence and murder to further their cause, Hypatia's slave Davus (Max Minghella) is torn between his loyalty to his mistress and the possibility of gaining his freedom by joining the rising tide of Christianity.
