Spanish-Chilean filmmaker, Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar, who wrote and directed The Others and Abre los ojos (the movie that Vanilla Sky was a remake of) has completed another movie that played at Cannes, though it hasn't picked up an American distributor yet (and thus far, has no release date). Agora is a historical drama set in Roman Egypt, concerning a slave who turns to the rising tide of Christianity in the hopes of pursuing freedom while also falling in love with his master, the famous female philosophy professor and atheist Hypatia of Alexandria.

What's important for our purposes is that Hypatia is played by Rachel Weisz, and the movie looks every bit as beautiful as she does. Goddamn, she is stunning. The movie, based on a true story, looks pretty decent, too. You know: For a historical drama.
