Link to Christian Cinema website for the movie The Encounter
This movie came out in May of 2011, but it is a favorite of mine, so I wanted to review it for any of you who have not seen it yet.
The movie The Encounter is about a group of people who by God's intervention end up at a diner called The Last Chance Diner. There is a teenage runaway girl, a young woman on her way to get engaged, a couple who are on the verge of divorcing, and a business man. When they enter The Last Chance Diner they are met by the owner, whose name is Jesus. You can only imagine their reactions. The story goes on from there.
How does Jesus convince you that he is Jesus, even when he is standing right in front of you? There are so many people in this world that cry out to God "give me proof". Would we believe him if he did? Would we believe that miracles can happen now, even if we were to see them, or would we just think it was a trick? Are we listening when God speaks to us? Do we really want to hear him?
I believe this movie touches on all of that. The cast is amazing with Bruce Marchiano playing Jesus, Sting plays the business man, and Jaci Velasquez is a young believer who must wrestle with want she wants versus what Jesus wants for her life.
This is a definite must see movie. I hope that all of you will watch it.
Please let me know what you think about The Encounter. I would love to hear from you.
