Agora (2009)
 
June's full-length essay is on a film that I have loved ever since the first time I watched it about six years ago. Alejandro Amenabar's Agora is many things - a historical epic, a character drama, and a cry against religious extremism - but most of all for me it is a love letter to science, based around the 4th century philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria.
