Riz Ahmed earned a Best Actor nomination for his stunning work in last year’s film Sound of Metal. He’s giving another captivating performance in Encounter. Ahmed stars as Malik Khan, a former marine, who believes a non-terrestrial microorganism is living inside us using the human body as a host. He continues to see the effects of this threat believing it’s taking over the planet. He takes his two boys on a road trip hoping to save them from this threat.
