My son normally goes for the action thrillers, especially movies about war. Before he could move on to another choice, I yelled, "sounds like a good one, let's check it out."
In the opening scene, a young teenager is flagging down cars and nearly gets run over. She is angry nobody will stop. The other drivers who neglected to help her end up in a diner after discovering the road has been closed. The man inside the diner offers each "guest" a free meal of their choice served exactly the way they like it. In addition to the free food, he offers ideas to help the stranded travelers find their way.
I give this movie five stars. "The Encounter" is a modern day look at life from God's point of view. Bruce Marchiano plays Jesus. Make sure to see this movie with the whole family and recommend it to your friends. I sent Bruce an email after we finished watching the movie and asked him to do an interview for my blog, "Free Lemonade Stories." He has a vision not only for portraying Jesus on the big screen, but also for sharing Him in places around the world where He is unknown.
