Oscar-winning actor Sir Ben Kingsley stars at the great Old Testament prophet and law-maker, Moses. In this classic, three hour dramatisation, the story starts as Moses's mother casts him adrift on the Nile in a basket during a deadly purge of Hebrew children by the Pharaoh Ramses, brilliantly played by Christopher Lee. The baby is found by a princess and raised as heir to the family throne but Moses will forego a life of privilege and luxury as he is called by God to liberate his people from slavery.
As the great exodus from Egypt is dramatically played out, the film follows the life and times of the Hebrew tribe - their trials and tribulations - with great performances from a stunning support cast that includes internationally acclaimed actors including David Suchet, Geraldine McEwan, Frank Langella, Anton Lesser, Dudley Sutton, Anna Galiena and many more.
