Secret State


Noah was originally a simple tale about God’s decision to wipe the planet of sinners and start over. Director Darren Aronofsky’s novel and intriguing reinterpretation recasts Noah as a complicated soul wrestling with inner demons during his quest to do the Lord’s bidding ahead of the impending deluge.

Starring Academy Award-winner Russell Crowe, Noah features a talented supporting cast including Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Nick Nolte, Emma Watson and Ray Winstone.
