Movie Review: ***Joseph the King of Dreams

This Dreamworks animated musical tells a very good story, but from my point of view the music is mostly forgettable.  Ben Affleck voices Joseph, and David Campbell provides his singing voice.  Mark Hamill voices Judah, and Richard Herd gives voice to Jacob.  This presentation portrays Joseph as being very bitter because his brothers sold him into slavery.  His wife, Zuleika (Judith Light) confronts him about his bitterness.  However, it isn't until he sees how his brothers are willing to given their own freedom for that of Benjamin, and because the truly express forgiveness of their previous actions, Joseph's heart is melted and he takes his brothers in and reveals who he is.
