Just watched this. It kept me engrossed for the duration but for a movie about a philosopher the plot was not very philosophical but rather fast paced. It didn't help that the written narration was in Spanish.
SPOILER - Maybe
Hypatia is not depicted as a 'fighter,' rather she goes her own way focusing on her astronomy even after the destruction of the library when it becomes clear that free-thought in Alexandria has no future. It also goes to show that tolerance of beliefs that are intolerant is foolish. It is clear that the prefect converted to Christianity for purely practical reasons but perhaps he didn't read the whole bible? Otherwise why wouldn't he bow when Cyril read the passage in the bible about the submission of women - if he truly understood his position he would have. The fact is that all the main characters lost except maybe Cyril. As for Hypatia it is clear that should would rather die than lose her privileged position or have to lie in public - but why didn't she just kill herself and avoid the humiliation? Why didn't she do more to fight the doctrine of Christianity so clearly opposed to roman tolerance. Philosophers don't tend to be practical folk so I'll forgive her. Good movie.
