Conservative Christians think he is one of the most amazing men to ever grace a television set. Liberal Americans see him as the root of what they deem is wrong with America.

I remember taking my sons to meet him and Uncle Si during the height of the popularity of Duck Dynasty and thinking to myself that he might be the kindest man I had ever encountered.

However, there was a time that very few wanted anything to do with Phil Robertson.  It's that transition from the former Phil, to the Phil we know today, that's being celebrated in a new movie entitled "The Blind" set to be released in select theaters nationwide.

On his Facebook page, Phil comments that:

I apologized to Jesus when I was 28, and I apologize to all of you who are about to see my heathen days. But if one person comes to Jesus because of this movie — just one — it was worth it.

On their YouTube channel, Fathom Events says this of this incredible new movie filmed in Shreveport.

Long before Phil Robertson became a reality TV star, he fell in love with Miss Kay and started a family, but his demons threatened to tear their lives apart. Set in the backwoods swamps of 1960s Louisiana, 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. This stunning cinematic journey chronicles the love story that launched a dynasty, the turmoil that nearly brought it crashing down, and the hope that rose from the ashes to create a foundation for generations to come.

Check out the official trailer for The Blind below and I'll bet you're as excited for the September 28 release as I am!
