When Esther is in the courtyard of the harem eating she throws food to a monkey. When the camera shows Esther tossing the food it is obviously a thin sliver of meat, however when it cuts to the monkey picking up food it is a banana, or some soft white/yellow fruit. These shots are shown twice. See more »
[catching Esther as she runs in the street]
Looking for someone?
I'm fine. Thank you. You can run back to Rebecca now.
Oh, I'm sure you're fine. Tell me Hadassah or who ever you are, how do you intend to get into the palace?
You didn't come to take me back?
[laughing with her]
Come or I shall you, Hadassah the mouse!

This movie is amazing for so many reasons, the cast, the scenery, the story-line and that it parallels what we see happening in the world today. The historical truth about an ancient Persian queen is exactly the same battle happening in Israel today. It's not often that you see a movie that can relate directly with current world affairs and still maintain truth and purity. This movie achieves all this and more. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys history, wholesome entertainment, a great love story or compulsive movie goers. What's great about this movie is that it can appeal to a wide variety of age groups and provides a much needed heroine/role model for young people today. This movie will inspire you and leave you cheering at the end! A must see!!
