Watch The Encounter
- 1 hr 25 min
The Encounter is a Christian drama about faith and how different types of people interpret that word. The movie begins with five different people on completely different paths. We are introduced to the businessman who is a smart aleck who sees everything through a thick pane of glass; the single woman who is full of love, wisdom, and calm by nature; the runaway teen that is stubborn and thinks she knows all of the answers to everything; and the couple who is on the verge of divorce. Although their paths are separate, they all end up on the same crossroads on a dark and dreary night that leads to an obscure diner in the middle of nowhere. Upon arrival they are all greeted by an unusual man who seems to know each and every one of their hearts even though not one of them has ever met him before. They all place their orders and ease up enough to tell each other their life stories. Their experiences have led each of them to reject God and the teachings of Jesus. This unusual man seems to be able to get to the heart of every one of their situations. He not only feeds their stomachs but feeds their souls with the wisdom of the Lord. It is up to each of them to take his advice to heart or to disregard the truth and wisdom that he shares with them. Everyone is weary of this strange man and begins to wonder if he is actually Jesus returned to us on Earth. After long hours of conversing, listening to each others’ hopes and fears, filling themselves with food and the word of God, each of them end up receiving the life answers that they have been searching for. They all leave as friends full of happiness having been returned to the path of faith and fulfillment thanks to the obscure man that owns the diner.
