I have always loved the story of Ruth in the Bible and this movie was beautifully made that tells the story!
It is a Biblical Cinderella story from the royal Jewish bloodline, a story that reveals the redemption of their inheritance through the child Obed, who was the grandfather of King David.
Ruth’s husband dies and she decides to leave her homeland of Moab and travel to Israel with her mother-in-law Naomi. Upon their arrival in Bethlehem, Ruth goes into the fields of Boaz to glean. Boaz learns that her deceased husband was a distant relative of his. He treated Ruth with kindness and instructs his farm workers to leave extra sheaves of barley for her to gather. Eventually Boaz and Ruth marry, of which Boaz is of the Royal House of Judah. It sets the stage for future kings of the nation of Israel and eventually the coming of the Messiah.
Truly a beautiful love story right out of the book of Ruth in the Bible. A movie the whole family can enjoy and also learn of the lineage of King David!
