“The epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption. Based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.”
Jack Huston is not Charlton Heston, but he gives his whole self to the role, doesn’t he? Will that be enough for you to go see the film?
Anyway, besides Jack Huston, the cast also includes Morgan Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro, Tory Kebbell, and Nazanin Boniadi.
Release date: August 19, 2016.
