One Night With the King

"One Night With the King" is a movie based on the book of Esther from the Bible. It is being released in theaters October 13th in select theaters. You can see if it's playing near you HERE.
Here is a brief description:
"An epic motion picture set in an imaginative world of adventure, intrigue, and romance, One Night With the King follows a young girl who rises from peasant to princess by going against the culture and seeking the King's heart rather than the riches of the kingdom.
By 'chance' she is born with exceeding beauty to a people who have been carried away as slaves to the most powerful kingdom in the world. By 'chance' her parents are killed while she is young leaving her to be taken in by her uncle, a man who has found favor as a royal scribe. By 'chance' the Queen is executed by the unknowing King, spurned on by the ruthless plotting of palace princes hungry for power. By 'chance' the King is left feeling alone, pushed and prodded, desperate to live up to and avenge the battles of his father. By 'chance' Esther is carted off to the palace to become part of the King's harem at the same time a vengeful young prime minister with the King's ear is rising to prominence with a plan for orchestrating the genocide of her people.
So begins the story of Esther, One Night With the King, a story that reveals that all of life is under God's command. Power, position, and prominence are one thing, but when Esther must choose between all she's ever dreamed of and the fate of her people, will she be able to find the courage to step forward and embrace her destiny?"
It looks like a great movie!
