Nikki and the Perfect Stranger 3: The Reunion
Kelly’s Filmworks, known for the popular novel-to-screen ventures, ‘The Perfect Stranger’ and its sequel, ‘Another Perfect Stranger’, is about to complete the trilogy with a movie adaptation of David Gregory’s latest entry in the ‘Perfect Stranger’ book series. The new film is entitled, ‘Nikki and the Perfect Stranger’ and is set to release in late 2012.
Described in the tagline as “The Reunion,” “Nikki” picks up the narrative of the original film’s heroine, Nikki Cominsky, several years after her first encounter with the man who claimed to be Jesus of Nazareth. The story revolves around a 40-something Nikki, no longer a high-powered attorney, confronting the Son of Man about the inconsistencies of the spiritual life she has experienced since their initial meeting in a Chicago restaurant. The new tale unfolds along the highways and byways of the Midwest between the Windy City and Cincinnati, Ohio.
Based on the new novel, “Night with a Perfect Stranger” (2012, Worthy Publishing) by David Gregory, the screenplay adaptation was written by Jefferson Moore, who returns to his familiar role as “The Stranger” (and also serves as director and executive producer). Moore’s wife, Kelly Worthington, is producer on the project. The couple formed Kelly’s Filmworks back in 2003.
“We were extremely moved by the truth and emotion of (David’s) new book,” says Kelly, “and were elated that we were once again able to secure the film rights. Since we produced the first ‘Stranger’ movie back in 2005, we have been witness to literally hundreds of people who’ve made it clear that these stories resonate with viewers from all walks of life – churchgoers and non-churchgoers alike.”
So, who doesn’t love this series! Roger and I had been really looking forward to this one and it was definitely a thought provoking film, as the entire series is. Here were some highlights:
- The importance of relationship over duty.
- Loved the ocean and baby analogy. My favorites!
- So focused on self we miss out on our relationship with God.
I’m one of those “check list” type people so there is one part that was difficult for me to watch. It gave me a LOT to think about, that’s for sure. 2 Corinthians 13:5 – Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?
Any film that causes me to grow in my relationship with Jesus is a worthwhile film.
