Newton's Dark Secrets: Nova

2005 Rated NR 56m

While pursuing his theories on the universal law of gravitation, scientific genius Isaac Newton was also searching out hidden meanings in the Bible, practicing the hidden art of alchemy and pioneering calculus. Using dramatic scenes starring Scott Handy as Newton, this "Nova" documentary re-creates the unique climate of late 17th century England, where a fascination with science and mathematics coexisted with extreme views on religious doctrine.
