Unscriptural attempt. Very disappointed. The Book of Ruth is such a beautiful story of redemption, this falls quite short. It adds ideas contrary to scripture and degrades the Word by adding to it. Rev. 22:18. Typical Laodicea.
If you are looking to learn about the book of Ruth then this is the movie to watch! Everything that happened in the movie lined up with the Bible and I made sure of this by reading the book of Ruth right after I watched the movie. Great job! Most of the time movies stick in your memory more than reading does sometimes. All I can say is that now after watching this movie I will never forget who Ruth is and what she accomplished as a follower of a God! Amazing!!!
This retelling of the life of Ruth was refreshing, after having viewed a less-than-stellar version previously. The movie was well-done. The storyline follows the details we have about Ruth in the Scriptures. As with any movie based on real life, some elements of the story involved literary license, but they did not detract from the core of the facts we have. Definitely moving and worthwhile.
