Television personalities, Phil Robertson and Kay Robertson are the embodiment of faith, family, and tradition, all of which are showcased on their hit reality television show, Duck Dynasty. Most fans of the show know that long before it aired, Robertson struggled with challenges of substance misuse and fidelity, eventually finding solace in his faith, getting clean, and turning his life around.
Their journey together began in the early days of their youth, growing up in rural Louisiana. The pair started dating in high school and got married just a few years later in 1966. Despite facing numerous challenges and obstacles at the beginning of their relationship, their love has remained unshakable.
Their new movie, The Blind, which touches on their relationship struggles and Robertson’s quest to conquer the shame of his past, exemplifies that love is not just about the good times; it’s about weathering the storms of life together, emerging stronger, and appreciating the simple joys of family and togetherness.
Directed by Andrew Hyatt, The Blind was released on September 28, 2023, and according to Movieguide, it is “a good movie as a Christian testimony.”
