An epic adventure that follows a young Jewish orphan who rises from peasant to Queen of Persia only to face the annihilation of her people.
The moving biblical tale of Esther--a humble Jewish girl who saved her people from annihilation and won the heart of the handsome Persian king Xerxes--is the subject of One Night with the King, a lush ode to one of the Old Testament's most inspiring women. Esther, played with spark and confidence by Tiffany Dupont, could perhaps be said to be the first career woman to "have it all"--while also serving her people, and God. The film, shot on location in India, has the feel of the great epics of the '60s--a sensation underscored by the appearance, in small but pivotal roles, of both Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole. (Even Raiders of the Lost Ark's John Rhys-Davies--"Bad dates!"--echoes earlier desert adventures.) But the film belongs to the willful Esther, who navigates among war, bloodlust, persecution, and terror with the strength of knowing she's serving the Lord, and her people. If the film has a few anachronisms--including the young Esther's suitor, who has blonde streaks and a surfer-dude delivery ("The market was rilly busy today")--its heart and its focus never waver. Fans of biblical tales and well-made drama for the entire family shouldn't miss it. --A.T. Hurley

I loved this movie so much, I saw it four times!!!!
It was the most beautiful love story I have ever seen in the biblical times and it goes to show that true love can exist no matter what.
I was captivated by the retelling of this story.
Usually when you think of bible stories you get see Charles Heston (may he rest in peace) standing on a mountain with gray hair and lightning behind him.
And you always think that there was a lot of suffering and ugliness, but this one was different.
True there was suffering. Don't all love stories have this going on?
But there was so much wonderfulness about this movie that I highly recommend it to all to see.
I can say (if you have never) One Night With The King makes you almost want to spend one night with your bible to read the story from Esther.
