Jacob is a German/Italian/American television movie from 1994, based on the novel Giacobbe by Francesco Maria Nappi, which is in turn based on a biblical account from the Book of Genesis about Jacob.


Jacob defrauds his twin brother Esau (Sean Bean) and flees. In Haran he gets to know his cousin Rachel (Lara Flynn Boyle), and falls in love with her. Years of hard work later he marries Rachel and reconciles with his brother Esau.
