CFDb Review:

We do NOT recommend this film strongly.  We only watched about 12 minutes of this film, in which there is idol worship, more deception than was actually in the Bible, and a bad sensual scene that was so unnecessary.

The Red Tent

Film Description:

Lifetime’s miniseries “The Red Tent,” based on the best-selling novel by Anita Diamant, premieres December 7 and December 8 at 9/8c. “The Red Tent” is a sweeping tale that takes place during the times of the Old Testament, told through the eyes of Dinah, the daughter of Leah and Jacob. Airing over two nights, the all-star cast includes Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Minnie Driver (“Return to Zero,” “About a Boy”), Emmy nominee Morena Baccarin (“Homeland”), Golden Globe nominee Rebecca Ferguson (“The White Queen”), Iain Glen (“Game of Thrones”), Will Tudor (“Game of Thrones”) and Academy Award, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Debra Winger (“Terms of Endearment”).

The miniseries begins with Dinah’s (Ferguson) happy childhood spent inside the red tent where the women of her tribe gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood. The film recounts the story of Dinah’s mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah and Bilhah, the four wives of Jacob (Glen). Dinah matures and experiences an intense love that subsequently leads to a devastating loss, and the fate of her family is forever changed. Winger portrays Rebecca, Jacob’s mother while Tudor stars as Joseph, Dinah’s brother.

“The Red Tent” has sold millions of copies worldwide and has been translated in 28 languages. The novel is a New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, USA Today and Entertainment Weekly Top Ten Best Seller.

Although based on a Bible story, it doesn’t really have God in it.

(STRONG Parental Warning!)

    This movie was absolutely brilliant!! I have got to own this soon!! It’s not on YouTube, Netflix, or any other websites…apparently it’s been removed from everything due to copyright issues. The only way I can watch it is on the Lifetime app. I can’t wait until it’s released on DVD, Netflix, or something!! I absolutely loved it!! 10 stars for me! So nobody knows when it will be out yet?

    25 minutes into the movie I realized this movie is so far from biblical truth. The only thing that is truthful are the names. This is sad. Read your Bibles ladies and stick to the Word of God. God bless you all.
