I’ll admit I’ve never read Moby Dick. A 700 page book about a guy trying to catch a whale sounded pretty boring to me. However, if it had fire breathing dragons, sword fights and Sofia Pernas I would have read it every day! Age of the Dragons is a retelling of Moby Dick set in a medieval world.

Movie Synopsis:
In a medieval realm where Captain Ahab (Danny Glover) and crew hunt dragons for the vitriol that powers their world, Ishmael (Corey Sevier), a charismatic harpooner, joins their quest. Ahab’s adopted daughter Rachel (Sofia Pernas), beautiful and tough, runs the hunting vessel. Ahab’s obsession to seek revenge on a great “White Dragon” that slaughtered his family when he was young and left his body scarred and mauled drives the crew deeper into the heart of darkness. In the White Dragon’s lair, Ahab’s secrets are revealed and Rachel must choose between following him on his dark quest or escaping to a new life with Ishmael.
