Connelly plays Naameh, Noah’s wife, in this adventure drama written and directed by Darren Aronofsky. Naameh supports Noah (Russell Crowe) as he builds an ark to save humanity and animals from the upcoming flood. Co-starring Emma Watson and Anthony Hopkins.
If you read Genesis, she doesn’t even have a name. I don’t think that there’s anything wrong with being supportive, and devoted, and having faith. I mean, it’s a very particular circumstance – the creator has been communicating with Noah – so one understands her faith and following him. But, in the context of the story, I do think that she has extraordinary strength.
