Christian Family Movie Review: The Encounter

Stranded in the middle of nowhere five strangers find themselves marooned in a deserted roadside diner.

An arrogant businessman, a lonely single woman, a couple on the verge of divorce, and a youthful runaway all come face to face with a diner owner who serves them more than temporal nourishment.

This genial host is a certain Nazarene, who knows all of their secrets and possesses the answers to all of their problems – if only they would trust Him.

It is a miraculous Encounter that will leave them all changed.

Aaress’ 411 on The Encounter

It’s rare that I watch a movie that stays with me long after the credits roll. But that’s exactly what happened after I watched The Encounter. Since then, I’ve watched it several times—with friends, with family, and even with young people at a Christian leadership camp. I can’t seem to stop recommending this film—and have even found myself pondering on a regular basis the truths that it shares.

In short, this is a must-see Christian video for teens and adults. Even though it treads delicately, the film does tackle some hard-hitting topics, so I would recommend parental previewing before showing it to younger children.

If you want a Friday night flick that stays with you long after the popcorn bowls are empty, this film is for you.

Where to Find the Encounter

Netflix, Amazon, Walmart, or wherever movies are sold.
