------

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..
