When my Mom was alive, I remember her telling me what a good movie Ben-Hur is. She was referring to the 1959 film during our talk in the 1990’s. I did not really get that much why she loved that film.
Now fast forward 2016 and a new Ben-Hur movie will soon be shown in the theaters 🙂 And I only learned now that the film Ben-Hur has been based from a novel an 1880 novel of Lew Wallace. I also read that the story, a fictional one, was set during the time of Jesus Christ. I find this intriguing and judging from what I have read so far about the movie, I believe it would prove to be an interesting one 🙂
I look forward to watching it with my husband soon 🙂
