Turning ninety-seven Biblical verses into a 138-minute movie is a feat unto itself. However, what director and co-writer Darren Aronofsky has done with Noah, is taken those one hundred verses and sought to answer the questions and fill in the blanks left open after reading Genesis 6-9. Noah, in this way, is largely respectful of its source material, but it doesn't accept the simplified nature of the story without wondering the hows and the whys of it all. Instead, Aronofsky and co-writer Ari Handel (The Fountain) wonder how God (referred to as The Creator in the film) "spoke" to Noah (Russell Crowe). It seeks to answer how Noah and his family -- his wife (Jennifer Connelly), three sons, Ham (Logan Lerman), Shem (Douglas Booth) and Japheth (Leo McHugh Carroll), and his adopted daughter Ila (Emma Watson) -- could have built an ark three hundred cubits long, fifty cubits wide and thirty cubits high. »
