The Life of Hypatia Portrayed


Hypatia has a film. Her biography is well known to myself, but apparently not to the woman who protrays her on the screen — what else is new? Weisz looks good but is the movie any good?

It was shown at Cannes this month.  I am glad to see more dramas revolving around historical figures, especially ones that are not well known. Hypatia was a religious woman, forget the atheist and pagan tags because Christianity would not exist were it not for official religion of Rome — Stoicism and the splinters it created. Plotonius and Platonism included in the mix. Religion is not what you think and as soon as the world realizes that there will be no more wars.
