Emmy winner Joseph Sargent brings us the first in a series of magnificent Biblical epics from Turner Home Entertainment.
Abraham is a powerful film, based on the most dramatic and moving tale from the Old Testament in which an ordinary shepherd is called upon by God to show his abiding faith in extraordinary ways. Abraham (Richard Harris, Unforgiven and Academy Award nominee for The Field) and his wife. Sarah (Barbara Hershey, Beaches and A Dangerous Woman) heed a divine command to leave home and embark on a difficult journey. Join them on this dramatic odyssey through the desert that leads them to the Promised Land, Canaan, where Abraham would become father to countless future generations. Witness the endless trials and tribulations Abraham must overcome to keep his faith, including the ultimate one: God's command that Abraham sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac. Abraham is a powerful and moving Biblical epic with timeless appeal to people of all ages and backgrounds. It is a suspenseful, action-packed film with ground-breaking special effects.
Experience for yourself the intrigue, passion, and the glory of Abraham.
