AGORA is a historical drama charting the life of female scientist and philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria, set against the backdrop of the downfall of the Roman Empire and the rise of Christianity.

Violence

There are occasional scenes of moderate violence in scenes of rioting between Christians, Romans and Jews including stabbings, blows to the head and stonings. These sometimes include sight of blood, although stronger images occur in the aftermath of violent scenes such as sight of a decapitated corpse and a head wound being sewn up.

There is also a brief scene in which a woman is threatened with sexual violence, but the attacker soon realises what he is doing is wrong and stops.

There is brief rear female nudity. A woman also presents an admirer with a symbolic gift of a cloth stained with blood from her menstrual cycle.
