Jewish girl Hadassah only needs One Night With the King to save her people from the schemes devised by Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, whose lineage crossed paths with the Jews during the time of Saul, king of Israel.
Around 470 BC
The Book of Esther
-- A Special Movie Edition of the Bestselling Novel, "Hadassah"
The Bible (Here's my favorite version from Amazon)
The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order (NIV)

Tiffany Dupont, Luke Goss, John Noble, John Rhys-Davies, James Callis, Omar Sharif, Peter O'Toole
I was kind of surprised when I learned that this film, produced by TBN, is not based on the bible but on the book of Hadassah by Tommy Tenney.
I suppose this explains the obvious differences between the movie and the story of Esther in the Bible.
And there certainly are big differences but not quite as many as most Bible movies, in that respect, this film is pretty respectable.
Aside from the historical nature of the storyline, I had been craving to see a modern movie remake the palaces and splendor of an ancient kingdom like the Persian empire.
It's vivid colors and large vibrant monuments were worth the head ache of the influences the 21st century has impressed upon this story.
Rest of review coming soon..
