Agora (A movie about Hypatia of Alexandria!)

I first came across the story of Hypatia over a quarter century ago and it resonated deeply with me. The film is doing huge business in Spain, but has not found a US distributor. Shocking, that a movie about a strong, intelligent woman who is murdered by a mob of Christian zealots can’t find distribution here. (sigh) Sarah Palin is the anti-hypatia.
