Exodus (12A). An epic in the grand Hollywood tradition of Spartacus and Cleopatra, Exodus portrays the Old Testament story on the vast cinematic scale that Ridley Scott (Gladiator) has made his own. Moses (Christian Bale) and Rhamses (Joel Edgerton) were raised as brothers, but are pitched against each other as warriors when Rhamses becomes pharaoh and Moses becomes the leader of the enslaved Israelites. Their dramatic struggle is set against a spectacular backdrop of (super)natural disasters – the famous plagues of hail, boils, flies and frogs – and astonishing set pieces, most notably of course the parting of the Red Sea. Timeless themes of loyalty, honour and betrayal, state-of-the-art effects, a stellar cast, gripping storytelling, and thrilling direction by a master of the craft make this an unforgettable movie experience. Friday at 8.30pm, Saturday at 8pm, Sunday at 6pm, Monday at 8.30pm, Tuesday at 2.30pm and 6.30pm, Wednesday at 8.30pm, next Thursday at 7pm.
