With murderous intrigue, betrayal and deceit, exotic jewels and lavish settings, this biblical epic sounds good on paper, but it falls flat on the big screen. Based on a novel by Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen, this film from director Michael O. Sajbel chronicles a peasants journey to becoming the queen of Persia. Hadassah (Tiffany Dupont) struggles as a Jewish peasant in ancient Babylon. But when King Xerxes divorces his wife, Hadassah hides her religious beliefs to become Queen Esther of Persia, so she can ultimately prevent a Jewish genocide. Meanwhile, Persia is on the brink of war with Greece after the Greeks kill Xerxes father, and conspirators plot to overthrow the king. With a campy script and attempts to turn a bland film into a brilliant one with brief appearances by Hollywood superstars like Peter OToole and Omar Sharif, One Night With the King isnt deserving of one night at the theater.
