When an oracle predicts that a child will become Prince of Egypt, a time of danger approaches the kingdom. The Egyptian Pharaoh (Paul Rhys, FROM HELL) orders the massacre of all newborn males. But one child, Moses--the son of a Hebrew slave--escapes certain death when he is set adrift on the Nile. As years pass, he is raised in a royal Egyptian household and, with no memory of his family, rises to the stature of prince. Upon discovery of his true heritage, and inspired by a fiery message from God, Moses (Dougray Scott, HEMLOCK GROVE) embarks upon a noble and desperate fight to reclaim his destiny as the leader and liberator of the Hebrew people.
With a stellar cast that includes Mia Maestro (ALIAS) and Golden Globe winner Omar Sharif (LAWRENCE OF ARABIA), The Ten Commandments is unsurpassed in its vision--both intimate and grand.
