StarringRachel WeiszMax MinghellaOscar Isaac

Directed byAlejandro Amenábar

Year: 2009

Plot: It’s the 4th century AD and the Greco-Roman world is decaying rapidly, as illustrated by the sacking of the great library of Alexandria by the Christian mob (which happened 300 years earlier by Julius Cesar). The main character, Hypatia, seems to barely notice as she goes on languishing on sofas and frowning in deep philosophical constipation.

Pros: Great fun for history buffs — you will run out of fingers to count inaccuracies, anachronism and goofs.

Cons: Cheap, corny, disjointed, badly written and boring, and we’re in a merciful mood when we say that.
