Movie Review: Crossroad

Through BuzzPlant's blogger program, I was given the opportunity to screen this movie online. Crossroad is a powerful drama about twelve strangers whose lives intersect at a diner. It is based on Romans 8:28, "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose." Murder. Man with a vengeance. Delayed appointment. Adultery. Attempted suicide. Robbery. Hostages. How does God bring about anything good out of all these? You have to watch it to find out (I don't want to spoil it :)). Michael sets up a meeting with Clef, the man who murdered his wife and daughter 6 years ago but nothing goes as he thinks it would. Don, a Christian, helps Michael and others see God in a different light. "God gives a second chance to make things right," said Don. This movie is suspenseful and intriguing; it kept my attention from beginning to end and it has a realistic ending (although you may wish it ended differently like I did :)). Crossroad is truly a powerful, inspiring film about faith and forgiveness, redemption and restoration. It also presents the Gospel message clearly. The cast did an outstanding job! Thumbs up for Shervin Youssefian, the film's writer and director! Crossroad was awarded 5 doves from The Dove Foundation. It's rated PG-13 for violence and thematic elements.

Note: Please turn off my music playlist at the bottom of this page before starting the trailer.
