The Story of Ruth is not a movie that was solely taken out of the Bible.
Around 1250 BC
The Bible (Here's my favorite version from Amazon)
The Narrated Bible in Chronological Order (NIV)
Stuart Whitman, Tom Tryon, Peggy Wood, Viveca Lindfors, Jeff Morrow, Elana Eden, Thayer David, Les Tremayne, Eduard Franz, Leo Fuchs
Directors take from many sources to build around the story, you will see pagan worship and many other aspects of peoples like the Moabites, from which Ruth came.
When the story turns to the Biblical text it seems to still lack the truth of the story written in the original text.
Directors and writers make it seem as though everybody was contemptuous toward her, even Boaz at first.
A rivalry is also added between the two, Boaz and the kinsman to whom Boaz went.
I have no idea where this whole idea came from, it is not in the Bible and no other historical text speaks of their relationship.
On the plus side, Naomi prays a humbling and touching prayer that is worth putting up with the rest of the film.
Rest of review coming soon..
