Bursting with action – including a chariot race for the ages – and elevated by themes of justice, liberty, redemption & radical forgiveness, it tells the classic story of Judah Ben–Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala(Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title and separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery and despair. Co-star, Morgan Freeman, also delivers a stand-out performance.
