Starring Al Robertson duck dynasty And while the character is portrayed in the film, he says he has received multiple reports that the film is having an impact on viewers. The character Al plays in this movie is the eldest son of Phil and Kay.

“It's unbelievable,” Robertson told Christian Headlines, referring to the film's influence. “…There are stories of people who literally had a conversion moment in the theater, where they just said, 'I need to accept Christ.'”

Others told him about “literally saving a marriage that was in the middle of a divorce and was about to end.”

“One of my favorite stories is about a woman whose husband has been an alcoholic for a long time and literally wakes up in the morning and starts drinking.”

The woman encouraged her husband, who was a fan. duck dynastyTo watch a movie.

“She said that about half way through the movie, she kept watching him cry.

“They really nailed the scene for the key moment where he kicks us out,” Robertson told Christian Headline. “It was raining and we were in our pajamas and we were scared and my mom was crying. And it was just this big emotional moment.

“The scene that had a greater impact on me, and I have seen it several times, was the scene of grace, especially the scene where the church is opened for us. [and] All the people who were there to provide a way for mom and dad. Now it was these events that brought me to tears. Because through all our hardships, we have learned that God has people there ready to help us when we need help. ”
