GREENLIGHT #96: The Nativity Story (with "Whale Rider" and "The Ten Commandments")

Ann and Les were not awed by The Nativity Story (2006.) It's a story we all know and the director Catherine Hardwicke was eager to tell it as plainly as possible. Well, it was too plain for Ann and Les. In fact, it was downright boring to them. Keisha Castle-Hughes as Mary just doesn't have any cinematic apeal. The most interesting charcter, Elizabeth, is played by Shoreh Agdashloo. But beware of the birthing scenes from both women. They'll have you begging for an epidural. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les recommends the first film by Ms. Castle-Hughes who played a captivating girl determined to prove herself in Whale Rider (2002.) Her grandfather, played by Rawrie Paratene, has the most expressive of faces. Ann recommends a truly entertaining biblical story with a cast of thousands directed by Cecil B. Demille with Moses played flamboyantly by Charlton Heston and his early nemesis, Rameses, played grandly by Yul Brynner. Both are after the delights of Nefretiri played by the enchanting Anne Baxter. The film is The Ten Commandments (1956.)
