Synopsis


The Nativity Story
Australian-born Whale Rider sensation and Oscar nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes stars opposite Oscar Isaac in Lords of Dogtown director Catherine Hardwicke's dramatic account of the Annunciation, and the arduous journey of Mary and Joseph to give birth to baby Jesus. House of Sand and Fog's Shohreh Aghdashloo co-stars in a film with a screenplay by The Rookie and Finding Forrester scribe Mike Rich. Filmed in the village of Matera, Italy (a locale that has remained virtually untouched by modern progress and also served as the backdrop for Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ), and Quarzazate, Morocco, former production designer Hardwicke's film strives for authenticity in telling the Bible's most treasured tale. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    True to the Biblical Story

    It would have been easy to make this a Hollywood-centric film; they didn't. Instead, they stayed very close to the Bible. They also used actors that where more ethnically correct. Mary, Joseph and families were Jews from the Middle East, not well-known "white" actors. The cinematography in this film was incredible as was the music, the acting, and the screenplay. I simply can't find anything that was grossly mis-handled. Though there was a little condensing of the story inat the end, it wasn't at all detrimental to the experience.
