Although well made, this film revolves around adulterous relationships and a lot of sensuality and very little God. Glad we could fast forward through those offensive scenes. We did like the 2nd half better and it really makes me want to know more about Masada.

Masada is the mountaintop fortress near the Dead Sea where the Romans found the last pocket of resistance after they conquered Jerusalem in 70 CE.
“We felt [the book] was best served if the screenplay came through the heart of a strong woman and Peacock is such a woman,” Downey said in a phone interview. “I met her right before Christmas; she came to our house in Malibu and I sat down with her and she clearly loved the book. Her book had Post-its sticking out from a hundred different pages where she’d lovingly made notes. She said whether she was brought on board or not, she was forever changed from having read the book and I was elated, because I could not put this book down when I first read it. I was like a woman who had fallen in love — I was hungry, turning pages, staying up later than I should have, in the absence of being able to pick it up the next day missing the book. When I was finished I missed the characters, longed for the characters – they got under my skin”.
“To meet a writer of the quality of Ann Peacock, and the experience of Ann Peacock, and discover she shared the same passion — it became a no-brainer she was the one to create this,”Downey said.
