Sure, it might look slightly like a remake of Kingdom of Heaven mixed with Gladiator with some Erin Brockovich thrown in for female-empowering good measure, but it also looks damn good.
Why’s that? Because it’s got a gorgeous Rachel Weisz fighting the powers that be under the direction of Alejandro Amenábar.
The film is “based on actual events” and takes place in Roman Egypt. It looks fairly epic in scope and super dramatic in that period-piece kinda way. While that’s not usually my thing, I’ll give Amenábar the benefit of the doubt.
