One Night With the King

Tiffany Dupont, Luke Goss, John Rhys-Davies, John Noble, Tommy 'Tiny' Lister

When a beautiful young slave girl learns that her people are about to fall victim to a horrible act of genocide, she will be forced to choose between realizing her wildest dreams or stepping into the ... read more read more...pages of history to embrace her destiny in an epic tale of one young girl who rises from peasant to princess to claim the heart of a king. Esther was born an exquisite beauty, but her people have been enslaved by the most powerful kingdom on the planet and her parents executed before she ever had a chance to truly know them. Subsequently taken in by her kindly uncle, a royal scribe, Esther is soon spirited away to the royal palace to take her place in the king's harem. Trouble is stirring in this ancient land, however, and when the queen, Vashti, is banished by the unknowing king, palace princes scramble for a position of power the desperate king determined to live up to, and ultimately avenge the battles waged by his father long ago. Now, as the wheels of destruction are slowly set into motion, a malevolent prime minister who has fallen into favor with the king soon begins to wield a frightening amount of power by calling for the death of Esther's people. With time running out for her entire race, Esther must face her fears and be willing to lay down her life if she is to ever fully realize the plan that God has laid out for her. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    The film generally adheres to the main plot of the Biblical narrative. However, the film adds stylistic elements not present in the Biblical story. The Jewish narrative of the relationship between Esther (Tiffany Dupont) and Ahasuerus (treated as Xerxes I of Persia in this, as in... read more many adaptations) was not a love story, but a forced marriage in which Esther had no choice. The story presents many facets that could have happened rather than strictly sticking to biblical texts.

    This was an Outstanding Movie, If you have traveled Western Europe or The Middle east, the scenes were so real, colors excellent, The Costumes were unbeleivable. This was a great movie, Do yourself a big favor get it, thank You Fox Family Video

    Close to perfect, a rendition of the book of Esther. If I didnt know the story in the book I would have rated this 5 stars.

    its not a bad rendition, I just didnt give it 5 stars cuz I think they missed to "portray" a few things about Esther. Still, yknow. Its a good movie... read more :) Maybe guys would see this as " a girly/religious movie --- and we all know how overly religious, religious movies go", I would beg to differ, this has zest. Sajbel did a great job in directing this.

    The Biblical epic One Night With the King is a compelling story of faith and duty. A Jewish peasant girl named Esther wins the heart of King Xerxes during his search for a new queen, but when a nefarious prince named Haman plots to kill the Jewish population she must risk everyt... read morehing to save her people. James Callis gives an incredible performance as Haman; creating a tantalizingly evil villain that's smart and crafty. Tiffany Dupont's performance as Esther on the other hand is quite poor, and she's unable to hold her own against her co-stars. However, the production valves are extraordinarily well-done; from the costumes to the set designs, to the sweeping score, the film does a remarkable job at creating a grand, historical look and feel. A powerful tale of faith, One Night With the King is an inspiring spiritual drama.

    [color=brown][b]Epski film u kome se mesaju avantura, intriga i romantika u prici mlade jevrejske devojke, koja m... read moreenja ime u Ester da bi bila bezbednija na dvoru kralja Kserksa kome postaje nova kraljica.


    Njen ujak Mordokaj, koji je savetuje mudro, spasava kralju zivot, ali ga intrige dovode u zivotnu opasnost...


    Ali kraljica i kralj biraju ljubav iznad kraljevstva i protokola, a ljubav na kraju ispravlja sve greske koje su ucinjene.


    Tiffany Dupont je prekrasna u ulozi Ester, Luke Goss je izmamio nekoliko uzdaha zenske publike tokom filma, a Peter O'Toole i Omar Sharif su svoj deo odradili veoma profesionalno.


    Ovo je film koji nekako ponese snove, uzvisi osecanja i ucini da covek poveruje ponovo u pravdu! Preporucio bih ga i onima koji vole citati Bibliju iako je prica dosta razvodnjena sto se toga tice, a u nekim delovima i prespora... ipak, ovo je film koji preporucujem svakome.

    Ocena, mozda cinim malu nepravdu sto dajem 7/10, ali to mi izgleda nekako fer![/b][/color]

    I was very disappointed that it didn't line up 100 percent biblically. But for being a movie based on the Bible, it could have been a lot worse.

    I did not feel the chemistry between King Xerxes and Hadassah. I like how she fought to save her people and all that but what's up with her reading to him just one time and then at the next meeting, WHAM, proposal of marriage. It would have being nice to see a follow up after the... read more story reading.

    Unbelievably great. It is basically the entire story of Esther (Old Testament) put to a motion picture. An excellent movie, especially if you read the book before or after.

    I really love the story of Esther, or Hebrew Hadassah. That being said, I enjoy this film. They've taken quite a few liberties with it but after my second viewing, I still enjoy watching this film. It's hard for me to not rate it higher. I just feel that they missed a lot of the ... read morecultural context of the story of Hadassah. A lot of the casting choices were pretty terrible, too. This film falls way short so I can't rate it much higher. But it's still a fun film for me.
