After watching this movie, here are my reactions: The characters, settings & wardrobes were excellent. The casting of characters was good - nothing of inappropriate content. This would have been a beautiful movie, if only it were scripturally accurate in ALL areas. This was not the Esther of the Bible who conducted herself with elegance, wisdom & poise. For example: when she enters the throne room uninvited, it is full of people & she is met with hostility & suspition. She is dripping wet after running through a rainstorm to get there. The drowned rat look - UGH! The king holds out his scepter at the last minute only to receive the scorn of his advisors. They tell the king Esther has dishonored him even worse that Vashti. Esther is close to fainting & cannot tell him why she came. This is not the majestic Esther that nobly & with courageous dignity enters the king's presence, with a plan so intricate, it could only have been of God. Movie is going into the trash. My children won't be watching it because it is not TRUTH.
I have this movie on my top shelf of DVDs. It's one of my favorite movies. All of the actors are excellent and it was well cast. I think the script is excellent. It is very multi-dimensional: romance, biblical, conflict, war, power, betrayal, etc. The scenery and setting was very authentic. I would highly recommend this movie!!
