Fine biblical drama finds brothers Jacob and Esau fighting over their birthright, tearing apart their family for 20 years. When the brothers finally reconcile, it's only to cast an envious eye on youngest brother Joseph, whom they sell into slavery. Taken to Egypt Joseph uses his talents to become the Pharoah's chief advisor but he can never forget his family or what was done to him. All-around good acting, directing, and writing.

The Story of Jacob & Joseph

I haven't seen the movie, just heard about it. And from the description it is not accurate in the account regarding the truth about Jacob, Esau and Joseph, son of Jacob. He is not a younger brother of Jacob and Esau, he is the younger son of Jacob. I will find and watch the movie just to see how good it is although it does seem to have some falsehoods in it.
