I hadn't heard about "Agora", starring Rachel Weisz, until I happened to see the trailer at The film opens on December 18, 2009 and will be released by Focus Features. For those who like films about ancient history, this one looks like a winner.

The plot, according to TrailerAddict:

4th century A.D. 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 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 and Davus, 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.

Here is the trailer:
