He becomes her kinsman redeemer and marries her. While the movie tells this wonderful story, it does so more like a church drama than a Hollywood movie. Poor, hungry Israeli women look too much as if they just stepped out of the beauty parlor, and the costumes look like they are made with modern fabrics using sewing machines.
That said, a lot of people enjoy presentations put on at their local church.
The lesson the movie teaches is a good one. As a conversation starter to talk about the Bible, this is an enjoyable DVD.
During a time of famine, Elimelech moves from Israel to Moab with his wife Naomi and two sons. When Naomi learns that the famine in Israel has ended, she returns.
She finds favor with Boaz, and he becomes her kinsman redeemer. It tells a strong story of redemption, however.
Its message is far more uplifting than much of what Hollywood spends many millions making. Regardless, the scenes were beautiful, sets believable, costuming well done, and over all a very good scripture rendition of the events of Naomi and Ruth.
Let's face it; the book of Ruth is not exactly romantic, not adventurous, not intriguing, not suspenseful, but history of major importance for the linage of David being from Bethlehem, and thus the prophesy of a Christ Child born of the House of David in a Bethlehem stable. But the 85 verses of Ruth were compacted well into just 91 minutes.
This is obviously a film made for the followers of the Christian faith, not a twist of content to make it more romantic or to include some sinister political plot.
That's why I liked it, a very good job for the intended audience, on a budget that makes it affordable. It follows Naomi and Ruth from the famine in Moab, their trek back to Israel, through the Boaz field gleaning, Naomi's push to get Ruth married, and of course then the union that produced a son, Obed, grandfather to David.
It speaks of faithfulness, "wither thou goest, I will go".
So dialogue could have been better, and the film did offer subtitles but they were unfortunately not quite in sync with the scene changes. It was yet enjoyable, and quite the companion DVD if you or a group is going to read or study the book of Ruth. Excellent DVD for a church library. Shutterbug99 3,0 de 5 estrellasIt's Ok My biggest gripe would be the liberty they took with the story.
I understand that you have to fill in things, but it seemed more like they made stuff up. For instance, the uncle - in the movie, they made it seem like the uncle "Near Relative" was actively trying to ruin Boaz, and that he hated Ruth.
I also feel that they spent to much time in the Moab scene.
Oh no, there's been an error
On top of that, the acting was very rough.I enjoyed the movie, a little over acted and everyone had hazel or blue eyes, so the characters didn't resemble the people of that time, but it is still worth watching. The Movie Star Kim Dickens. 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.
Sometimes the music even covers up dialogue. Most dialogue omits the contemporary use of contractions, where they were used it sounded better to me.
