The Book of Ruth, is a triumphant love story in the face of adversity.
This selfless journey of love and devotion is seen through the eyes of a young widow. Choosing to leave her homeland of Moab, she follows her mother-in-law Naomi to Israel after the death of her husband. Upon reaching Bethlehem, she meets and marries a man named Boz, who is of the Royal House of Judah. This chain of seemingly unrelated events sets the stage for the future kings of the nation of Israel, and the glorious coming of the Messiah.
A Biblical Cinderella story from the archives of the royal Jewish bloodline, this story reveals the redemption of their inheritance through the child Obed, who was the grandfather of King David.
Starring Dan Haggerty ( Grizzly Adams ), Lana Wood ( Diamonds are Forever ), Eleese Lester ( Friday Night Lights ), Carman of Carman World Ministries, and newcomer Sherri Morris as Ruth.

HOWEVER, the "Story of Ruth" film also sold is something we tried from library before deciding to buy and WOULDN'T BUY IT. Oy! It's purely made up, full of errors according to the Biblical book of Ruth. So buy this film here, NOT the other one!
HAVING SAID THIS...here's an update we came to decision on a while back:
The one exception to us recommending this film, is going to only strike a positive/helpful note with few people (we realize), but nevertheless....the problem we have with this film is that real live human beings with real life families (husbands, and/or wives, and/or children) are being intimate with other people outside of their family all for the sake of "it's just a job, it's acting." We personally don't believe that God will every approve body-close-holding and smooching, as "just a job so it's okay" when it comes to non-married people. You simply won't find that kind of behavior ever supported or condoned in the Bible. As i said, we realize this won't be a popular stance, in a Media-soaked culture, but nonetheless...it's the flat truth. So we cannot recommend you actually buy this film. There ARE films on the market, few though, that have actual actors who are husbands and wives being intimate on screen...or that have husbands and wives pictured who aren't married outside the movie but BARELELY touch in any intimate way (like FireProof, Facing the Giants, Time Changer, Flywheel, and others). We recommend you just place your own family member in the actor's spot, and see how you'd feel watching your partner or child doing the intimacy with a complete stranger (IN FRONT OF THEIR CHILDREN OR SPOUSE). Thanks for "listening." :)
-Ruth's mother is portrayed as very mean-spirited.
-Naomi has a friend that she later sets up with a man named Simeon
-The closer kinsman is named Neb and is also mean-spirited, and out to get Boaz
-When Ruth lays at Boaz's feet, she covers her feet with his robe, instead of just uncovering his feet (one of the more important details)
-When Boaz wakes to discover her, he is shocked that she "chose him". He also tells her how much he wants to "be with her" but he can't yet. He then holds her the rest of the night.
-Instead of just going to the other kinsman, the movie has Boaz pretend to be crazy in his love for Ruth to trick "Neb"
NONE OF THIS IS ACCURATE!!! I realize that Ruth is a short book and some liberties probably needed to be taken to make a movie, but this is ridiculous.
