Product Description

With lush cinematography, a mesmerizing score, and an all-star cast that includes Peter O'Toole, Omar Sharif and John Rhys-Davies, One Night With The King is a sweeping epic about Hadassah, the young Jewish orphan who becomes the biblical Esther, Queen of Persia.

Born into poverty, Hadassah (Tiffany DuPont) grows up to become a beauty who catches the eye of the powerful King Xerxes - and ultimately becomes his bride.

This movie was one of the best movies I watched. They could have better portrait of Persian old historical sites, though.

This movie is a wonderful adaptation of the story of Esther. While some artistic license has been taken, i think it remains true to the heart of the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed April 4 2009
By J. CHIU
Format:DVD
This movie was a total disappointment for me. After a while, I just fast-forwarded through the entire movie to at least get a sense of the rest of it, so forgive me if I've missed any key points about the movie in this review.

I don't know this for a fact, but I can't help wondering if the movie was produced by a crew that normally does high-budget porn films or R-rated Hollywood movies. It just seems like they weren't quite sure how to package the storyline for an anticipated faith-based audience, but they just thought that if they left the sex and nudity out, all the usual cinematic tricks used to create erotic tension would be okay.

Although there is no nudity, cleavage, or suggestive scenes, the movie drips of sensuality, including frequent shots of a buff King Xerxes shirtless, showing off bronze, oiled skin and lounging around in billowy bedrooms.

Another questionable scene is the one where Esther is abducted in the night by the king's men. The wrestling with a screaming Esther and the soldiers violently ripping off Esther's um, necklace, off her neck resembles a gang-rape fantasy, without there actually being a rape.

The biggest disappointment for me is the wimpy, wimpering portrayal of Queen Esther. From the biblical account, I'd admired Queen Esther because not only was she beautiful, but she struck me as a virtuous, clever, and prayerful woman, who had a strong sense of reverence for the promptings of God. She always seemed to know what was the right decision to make, always had a sense of her God-ordained destiny, and was ready to risk her life to save her people.

However, in the movie, for every situation requiring her leadership and decision-making, Queen Esther's response seems to be to scrunch up her face and cry.
