One Night with the King

Rating: 4 

The Bible is full of so many wonderful stories, it's a shame that more directors don't try to create films based on them.  I'm sure the Bible has had some influence on a lot of films, but it's nice to be able to sit down and see a movie solely dedicated to a Biblical story and have the scriptures come to life.  This wasn't a particularly well acted film, but the story was represented faithfully, and the message of courage and faith in the face of death was very well portrayed.

The film provides a good depiction of what could have happened, connecting the events as best it could.  As mentioned before, the acting and cinematography was a little amateurish, but good enough to hold our interest.  Carr read the entire story right after viewing the movie and confirmed that the film stayed close to the Bible story.  It's quite incredible to imagine the courage Esther must have had to put her life on the line to save her people.
