The Dovekeepers


Available on Blu-ray and DVD on June 30,2015 is The Dovekeepers from Paramount  Home Media and CBS Home Entertainment with a SRP $42.99 and $39.99. This is based on the novel by Alice Hoffman and executive producers  Roma Downey and Mark Burnett. The Dovekeepers follow a group of extraordinary women whose lives intersect in the fight for survival. Set in ancient Israel the riveting film recounts the events at Masan in 70 C.E. after being forced from their homes in Jerusalem by Romans, 900 Jews seek safety in the fortress at Masada, a mountain in the Judean desert. Holding out for months against a vast Roman army the film unfolds from the perspective of several courageous women who work as “dovekeepers” risking their lives to conceal secrets in their fight for survival.  This originally appeared on CBS as a two part miniseries event around Easter.  This movie stars Cote de Pablo (NCIS), Rachel Brosnahan (House Of Cards TV Series) and Kathryn Prescott (Finding Carter TV Series.

My Opinion: I really enjoyed the story the movie The Dovekeepers told and found it great for the whole family to see with a powerful message. I will be watching this over and over again!
