Colin Farrell as the gay Greek hero, Alexander:

too far-fetched or too tasty? Interesting that will gay marriage in the forefront of the news lately, a major film portrays an historical hero figure as gay. What is the political agenda of Hollywood? Notice that Achilles had a young male lover in The Illiad, but they left that out of Troy. On another note, I wonder: Is it enough that a film simply entertain you to be a good film? Or is there a higher purpose -- to educate you, make you think, give you different perspective? I understand all this is subjective, that what you want in a film is a personal choice, but I do wish people would think about these things before they tell you a movie is "good" or recommend you see it. They know what's up in France: French film not French enough
