The Blind: Movie Review
Seeing that there was a movie called The Blind coming out, to show even more of the back story of the Robertson family, I was super excited. I loved hearing about how they had failed (I know that’s weird), but then how they were able to get up and share what God had done in their lives, and try to help others. None of us are perfect, and it’s a blessing to hear how some old football player was used by the Lord wearing waders and using some decoys!
In the original post request, there was a warning stating: This film contains some intense thematic elements including smoking, drinking, abuse, and minor language that may be triggering. Please note that these elements are included to show the raw, true story of the Robertsons and what God did in their lives to bring them where they are now! Which one of us, hasn’t been around things like this in life? Even shows on TV anymore, you have to guard your children’s ears. I was pleased though, that they did give a warning, so any of us that review it, would know to maybe leave little ones out of the room, if necessary.
The movie started out with the normal young love. Starting a family and going through some of the normal low events of life. I had known that there was some drama in the family years ago, but after watching this, I have so much respect for Miss Kay for staying strong, being a young mother who ended up going to work to support her family and being able to rely on God’s love for help when she needed it. Such a great story, and even happier to be one who plays the duck music at Christmas, and thinks about this family when seeing the mallards fly over in the Spring. I would definitely recommend it!
About The Blind Movie:
Long before Phil Robertson was a reality TV star, he fell in love, started a family, and began to spiral out of control. THE BLIND shares never-before-revealed moments in Phil’s life as he seeks to conquer the shame of his past, ultimately finding redemption in an unlikely place.
“It’s embarrassing to think back to who I was for the first 10 years of my life with Miss Kay,” said Robertson in a recent Instagram post. “She’s the best friend a man could have aside from Jesus, and I love her. We never imagined they’d make a movie about our lives, but now we’re about to see The Blind on the big screen. Our prayer is that people will see it and know there’s hope. It’s never too late to be saved.”
Buy tickets to see The Blind only in theaters starting 9/28!
