The First "Cinderella" Allegory of the 21st Century
This is more than just a love story; and it's more than just a Cultural Myth. Since time memorable, there have been Heroes and Heroines that have come out of each successive generation.
I feel privileged to have heard the author's father preach this very message years ago when I was a child. I also feel privileged to have co-written the song, "For Such A Time As This",(once again) following a sermon preached back in the mid-1980's.
This story transcends the "Top 20" list and it goes beyond an "Inspirational Fad", because it continues to be reborn in anyone who will rise to embrace the Call that leads a person to their Destiny.
The cinematography of this motion picture is lavish and the music is luscious. Judeo-Christianity and all love-based religions have come out of the closet in the telling of this age-old story and we may be witnessing the re-birth of secular Hollywood, all because someone stood up and came forth... "For Such A Time As This".
Not only did this movie make me feel good. It challenged me to once again embrace the hope and courage of Esther -- something more than religion; rather, a way of life.
See this film not just because of it's "Faith-Based" theme. See it for the message of enduring Courage that it portrays. And stay tuned for the sequel.
