By revealing her heritage to the king, Esther thwarts the evil prime minister's plan to annihilate all Jews in the Persian Empire. The annual festival of Purim is inspired by her heroism.

Aaron M (br) wrote: Greg Kinnear plays an oblivious, put-upon sad sack who gets involved with two women, both 15 years his junior, who are completely incompatible with him. He whines about that for a while, then cuts off the tip of his finger with a kitchen knife. I'm sure there is more, but that's as far as we cared to watch. Despite an astonishing number of gratuitous nude shots of stunningly beautiful couples locked in heated embraces (no, Kinnear is not among them), this is an amazingly dull and lifeless film that shows little understanding of love, passion, or human motivation.

Its not a bad film by any stretch of the imagination; in fact there are some moments in it that are effectively chilling; and the twist at the conclusion of the film was certainly not something I expected. But the overall effect of the film didn't live up to its promise of bringing you into the movie as much as it wanted to; even though it is filmed like a series of home movies, it is shot in such a way that I never once felt like I was watching documentary type footage but instead was watching a filmed performance. The key to making a film like this work is to have the film stock and the performances appear as if they were not really acting but just capturing moments as they occur. As fun as Kevin Howarth's performance, with its flamboyance and its swagger, might be, it is always abundantly clear in all its scenery-chewing flashiness that it is in fact a performance. On the flipside, the thing that made "Man Bites Dog" triumph over this film is that it often felt as if you had found lost amateur footage of a highly disturbing nature, and that film kept its satirical sense of humor much more in touch than this one. A fun little entry into the horror genre and a decent effort for such a low budget but not the revelation some horror aficionados made it out to be (at least not in my estimation).

All is well until his ambitious young house maid, Jean Simmons, deduces what he's done and chooses to use that information to improve her position. She puts the screws to him while falling in love with him, and, not unexpectedly, he feels that this fresh-faced girl has to go too.FOOTSTEPS IN THE FOG is a nicely atmospheric, dramatic showcase for the then married Granger and Simmons. It's all gaslights, foggy back streets and opulent drawing rooms. While not a "great" film, it holds your attention with the story's numerous twists of fate. Though it's shot in color, I think the picture would've been aided greatly if it were shot in black and white.Things learned from this movie:1.) Never live in the same house with someone you know to be a murderer.2.) Never live in the same house with someone you know is willing to blackmail you.
