The Shack

Based on the best-selling novel with the same name, this film tells the story of a father whose daughter is kidnapped on a family outing. Her blood was found on the floor of a nearby abandoned shack in the Oregon wilderness, but neither she nor her body were found. In the course of trying to find out what happened to his daughter, the father encounters God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – who are presented in a most unique way. The movie, starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer, sparked substantial controversy when it was released in 2017, and was not without its critics. However, as one critic said, after a long, largely negative, review: “The Shack is well acted and focused on weighty questions intelligently asked – and unlike most movies, it takes religion seriously. Perhaps for that reason alone it deserves to be patronized.” Come, be a patron, see for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.
