Storyline

After the lewd and frenetic Dance of the Seven Veils and with the solemn pledge from the very lips of Herod himself that she could have whatever her heart desires up to half his kingdom, wanton and proud young Salomé comes before her King with a frenzied and unreasonable demand. Beguiled by John the Baptist and then scorned for the sake of his God, the lascivious Salomé encouraged by her mother, the vindictive Herodias, commands that John be executed and his head delivered on a silver platter. And so, the King agrees. Written by Nick Riganas

Yuck!

Putridly boring. What were they thinking when they decided to make this? These people must've been desperate for a paycheck. They should've just made a movie about Salome as a period piece rather than this play version in modern clothes. It was hard to take them seriously talking like that while wearing suits and dresses.

Even though these people are good actors, they were not here. That's not to say anyone else could've done a better job. I just think the material was...bad. It was such a struggle to stay awake.

There is a topless scene that Jessica Chastain does. It lasts for close to one minute. Throughout the rest of the movie, she keeps a long, red scarf draped over her shoulders covering her breasts.

I gave this a 3-star rating. If you close your eyes and just listen to them, it might be better. However, the modern clothes really took away from the storyline using the old-style way of speaking. I do NOT recommend. There are better ways for people to waste their money.
