By the Gods!

Indira Varma plays the High Priestess in EXODUS: GODS & KINGS (2014)

I'm always reluctant to watch the latest PEPLUM films released by Hollywood because they have so little to do with what I mostly love about the genre in films made in the past, which is why I waited all this time to watch this Ridley Scott version of the story of Moses and the liberation of Hebrew slaves from their Egyptian rulers. To say that I didn't like it would be an understatement. The few highlights from this was Indira, who seemed to be the only one who 'got' how to play in such a film. Her costume in this scene, and the costume of the entire cast, was an anachronistic mess. I'll write a full review in the near future.

I have not seen this version and I am very reluctant to watch it. I have it on Amazon Prime and so far have stayed away from it.

I saw it when it first came out and I really hated it. Christian Bale delivers all his lines like Bat-Moses.
