I have been hearing so much about “The Story Of Ruth”. So i decided to watch it at home. I’m really happy that i watched it because i really loved it. My sister watched it with me as well and now it is her number two movie. She just couldn’t help saying how good it was and how amazing it was. It got really annoying after a while but that’s what you get for letting a little kid to watch a movie with you.
It was mostly about love and faith and about how a young lady named (Ruth) changed her belief about her gods by a man named (Mallon). They end up getting married but then he gets killed and Ruth has to go to a different village with her mother in law (Naomi). In the new village she gets criticized and hated in her new world until she meets another man named (Boaz) and he changes her life forever.
I liked this very much because it showed how much people can hate someone by where they come from without actually getting to know them. It shows how cruel people can really be. I also think that they were really jealous of Ruth because she was very beautiful. Just because all of there crops were dying they blamed everything on Ruth. I think that this teaches us a lesson about how to respect other people.
The fashion was really old but in the same way i loved it. It looked very pretty and fashionable.I guess what i am trying to say is that it fit with the time period that the film took place in. The place was also very old fashioned as was the transportation.
The Story Of Ruth is very different then it would have been now. It’s very old style and it’s very interesting. During the film i would relate how much harder it must have been to live like theydid and how easy it is for us to live now. The way they did the shots it made evrything look very old style. They did a lot of close ups and a lot of long shots.
Other films similiar to “The Story Of Ruth” such as( Barabass,Ben-Hur,etc.) they were just not what i was expecting. They had i guess i can say, too much violence. Ruth had violence as well but it didn’t have a lot and it had more of the peace, faith and love in it. This film made me happy and sad and that’s why i loved it. It really touched me. I would really recommend this to someone who really likes romance.
