Performers, Cast and Crew:
A fine dramatization of the Old Testament tale of Jacob's son who rose to power in Egypt, much to the dismay (and chagrin) of his ten older brothers.
Description by Warner Home Video:
Cast into a pit by his jealous brothers, young Joseph pleads for mercy. Instead, the brothers sell the terrified boy into slavery in Egypt. But Joseph turns this agonizing betrayal into triumph. Academy Award winners Ben Kingsley and Martin Landau highlight an outstanding cast in this beloved Biblical tale of treachery and redemption. Joseph uses his gift for divining dreams to rise from slave to Pharaoh's most trusted aide, saving Egypt from seven years of famine. Then his brothers travel to Egypt in search of food...and right into Joseph's power. "Forgiveness is greater than vengeance," Joseph declares. "Compassion more powerful than anger." But can he forgive so grievous a wrong'
Biblical, made-for-cable film about Joseph, the youngest and favorite son of Jacob, sold into slavery in Egypt by his jealous brothers, who becomes, through intelligence and common sense, one of the Pharaoh's most trusted servants.
