Let me say that this is not a big Hollywood production, and I am glad for that. It is fabulous in bringing the story of Ruth into a format that folks can see and feel. I cry everytime I watch Ruth proclaim to Naomi that she will not leave her, and she will go where she goes, and your God will be my God gets me everytime. I have two copies just in case one wears out.
Yes there were liberties taken with the story. But so often that does happen. I am not sure why they feel they need to make changes from a good bible story, but they do. Even with the changes we thought it was a good movie.
This was the best movie ever! The music was so beautiful that I recorded it and the movie reminded me that God has a plan to bless us with a hope and a future. it also inspired me that God is a God of second chances. the performances of the characters were real and believable.
This movie was very disappointing. The acting is awful, the script was poor, the tempo was slow, and it was a waste of time. There are too many good films to waste time on this one. Don't understand how it has nearly 4 stars. It should have only 1.
