A Biblical epic from the director of Black Swan and Requiem For A Dream promises something a little different from the Charlton Heston adventures of old. Noah (Russell Crowe) lives in the wilderness with his wife (Jennifer Connelly) and three sons in rustic simplicity. By contrast, his fellow descendants of Adam and Eve have built an industrial civilisation that pollutes the Earth, and one of their leaders is an evil man named Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone). Noah has unsettling dreams foretelling a flood that he believes will come from God to punish his more wicked countrymen, so he sets about building an ark with the help of monstrous fallen angels. Tubal-Cain plans to take it from him and launches an attack.
