According to Sony’s press information, The Bible Stories: Esther was “created by the largest television co-production in history, and (was) shot on location in Morocco and Malta with a production team that included Christian, Jewish and Muslim scripture scholars.” The result of this effort is a visually sumptuous film that combines romance and heroism to effectively retell a very old story.
Bottom Line: Would I buy/rent The Bible Stories: Esther? Yes. The re-creation of ancient Persia and the retelling of an ancient story combine to provide a meaningful and absorbing video experience. There are no special features included on this DVD.
