The great allure of the story of Esther is that it is one of rich complexity, working on multiple levels—heart-wrenching love story, grand adventure and ultimately a lone girl against an empire in a plot that plays out like it was dreamt up in Hollywood. But beneath all this is a genuine exploration of hatred, racism, revenge, courage and redemption.
For the reality is that before there was Hitler, there was Haman the Agagite who very nearly brought about a total Jewish holocaust 2,500 years ago. And before there were Schindler and so many other Jewish and non-Jewish heroes celebrated in modern films, there was a little Jewish orphan who saved her people from destruction. It is an epic story that can be boiled down to one simple theme…If this orphan, minority girl, a foreigner, could change her world, there’s hope for all of us.
The movie is based on the best-selling novel, Hadassah: One Night With The King by Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen. It stars silver screen legends Peter O’Toole and Omar Sharif, along with the John Rhys-Davies, Luke Goss, John Noble, Tommy “Tiny” Lister, James Callis, Jonah Lotan and Hollywood newcomer Tiffany Dupont.
