Review: Darren Aronofsky has done his Bible-storytelling homework for his epic "Noah," in which sin is alive and well.
Russell Crowe, who plays the title character in the new Hollywood blockbuster "Noah," lobbied hard for a personal audience with Pope Francis. What he got Wednesday instead was a blessing.
Crowe used social media in recent weeks to try to cajole Francis to watch "Noah," which has drawn fire from religious groups that say the film takes too many liberties with the biblical story of Noah's Ark and the great flood. Crowe also asked for a private audience with the pontiff.
The upcoming Russell Crowe film "Noah" is stirring concern as it touches on a beloved Bible story dear to people of several faiths.
