Joseph King of Dreams (2000)
in Historical Perspective

The Book of Exodus

Joseph King of Dreams is a story for the whole family.

This dramatization of the story of Joseph would be brilliantly told if not for its few historical inaccuracies.


like it

When Joseph was a boy he had two dreams that foretold his and his family's futures but no one expected the means by which they would become true.

He was sold into slavery to the Ishmaelites by his own brothers. No sooner was he sold than everyone started noticing his talents and favor by God.

And when he is bought by Potiphar, one of PharaohÕs officials (the captain of the guard), is almost immediately put in charge of Potiphar's entire household with the exception of his wife.

This single restriction proved to be Joseph's greatest trial, and he passed with flying colors. To this day, he is an inspiration of integrity, purity, trust and faith.

The film does an "ok" in portraying most of his qualities, the movie makers also build around the story quite cleverly but perhaps inaccurately. One can only assume and the rest depends on your imagination.
