Cast edit

Reception edit

Peter T. Chattaway from Patheos gave Moses a good review and praised Kingsley's performance: "For sheer human realism, Kingsley’s is probably the best interpretation of Moses any film has offered to date."[1]

Moses was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding Miniseries".[2] In a 2006 interview, Kingsley described the role of Moses as one of his most challenging and enjoyable screen roles to date. He also recalled a moment when he and Lee had kept the extras and crew entertained during a break between shooting with a rendition of "Moses Supposes" from the musical Singin' in the Rain.[3]
