After reviewing the movie, Home Beyond the Sun, Pureflix Entertainment surprised me by sending me The Book of Ruth DVD. Not just one copy but four copies, so next Monday our new giveaway will be an opportunity for three of you to win a copy of The Book of Ruth! This was very generous of Pureflix and I hope many of you will enter the giveaway.
It was interesting that this was the next movie to review because last month our family watched another version of Ruth and were slightly disappointed in the discrepancies throughout it. Pureflix’s version was pretty much right on in their depiction of the story and characters. They did not take liberties like the other version did. We liked that.
We really enjoyed The Book of Ruth. Due to time contraints we did not preview this one beforehand but there really wasn’t any need to. It is a very family-friendly movie. We loved that the characters were portrayed like their real characters, showing their sorrow, as well as their joy and servitude towards one another. If more people would think of others before themselves, the world would be a much better place.
This film showed the wonderful relationship between Ruth and her mother-in-law. So often in the real world, mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws get a bad rap from one another, but this movie showed how a daughter through marriage can be a devoted and loving daughter – by choice.
Unlike, Home Beyond the Sun, The Book of Ruth the characters seemed more authentic, as were the scenes in the movie. Very well done, in our opinion.
We have been very pleased with the films we have viewed from Pureflix and highly recommend them to families seeking family-friendly entertainment without the use of sensored equipment like Clearplay for bad language etc.
