New to theaters, “Risen” tells the story of the events surrounding Christ’s death and missing body after his crucifixion from an outsider’s perspective. It follows a fictional Roman soldier who is given marching orders to debunk Christ’s resurrection. Although you should be cautioned that the movie contains some violence, “Risen” accomplishes something quite remarkable: it tells the story of Jesus’ death and resurrection from a fresh vantage point. In theaters now and ahead of the upcoming Easter season, check out the review posted at Plugged In here and take a peek at the official “Risen” Movie trailer here.
Listen to an interview with the author of the novel on which the movie is based.
