The Book of Esther, DVD
Script was BAD. Acting was fine. Low budget
The Bible account of the book of Esther is a wonderful. Too bad the script writter for this film did not follow the story. The acting was good and for a low budget film it was, as my wife put it, entertaining. Other than that it was worst telling of Esther I have ever seen. I'ver seen at least 3 other film versions. One really good thing about the movie I can say is that my young children were conscently crying out how what the movie was saying happened was wrong. It made me feel good that my children on their own could tell error.

This story on the book of Esther is totally different to the Bible - I was very disappointed.

I only got this movie because I saw the Book of Daniel by the same company and it was so good and very close to the bible. But this was not close to the Bible at all. In fact the liberty they took with this movie was so unnecessary. I would not give this to anyone and now I am stuck with it.
Also there was some immodesty in the dress of the women. I have a hard time appreciating that in a Christian movie.

I cannot recommend this movie
I chose this movie as well as the one on the Book of Daniel due to the Dove recommendation. Although I was pleased with Daniel, I actually threw this movie in the trash after viewing. Although it was nicely filmed and clear, it absolutely did not follow the Bible in its presentation. There was much license in the script; I wondered from where some of it originated. I prefer the Esther film from Trimark/Lionsgate and then "One Night with the King." I hope this review is not too harsh. I feel a movie with the title of a book of the Bible should follow that book in the Bible.
