Giveaway: Agora

***Update: Competition closed. Enjoy the film!


This giveaway definitely tickles my inner history-geek's fancy. Rachel Weisz (whom I adore) playing an ancient Egyptian astronomer, who contemplates the heavens as religious war sees all hell break loose on earth.

The official synopsis reads: 

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.

From acclaimed writer and director Alejandro Amenábar (The Sea Inside, The Others), AGORA is the story of a woman, of a city, of a civilisation and of a planet. Inspired by real events which have never before been brought to the screen, AGORA boats a stunning central performance from Academy Award winner Rachel Weisz.
