Alone Yet Not Alone Takes In $534K Over Father's Day Weekend

Alone Yet Not AloneAlone Yet Not Alone was re-released in theaters nationwide over the weekend and took in more than $534,000.

The feature length film, which the Huffington Post called “surprisingly entertaining,” is based on the true story of a German-American immigrant family that faced hardship, loss, and sorrow during the French & Indian War in 1755.

Set at a critical juncture in our nation’s history, Alone Yet Not Alone recounts the journey of faith and survival of Barbara and Regina Leininger, who are captured by Delaware Indians in a raid on their home. Transported through more than 300 miles of wilderness to Ohio, the sisters are sustained only by their abiding trust in God and their hope of escape against all odds to be reunited with their family.

In his review of the movie, Huffington Post film critic Jackie K. Cooper said the cinematography is “impressive, as is the musical score.”

“Although this is a faith-based film with a group of unknown actors, do not dismiss it out of hand,” he wrote. “Its story is challenging and the presentation is very professional. The entertainment value it presents took me by surprise.”

The movie has also received glowing reviews from various Christian leaders, including Tony Perkins of Family Research Council, Dr. James Dobson of FamilyTalk, and Joni Eareckson Tada of Joni and Friends, who sang the title song for the film.

“We’ll want to get behind this film,” expressed NRB President & CEO Dr. Jerry A. Johnson. “Everyone will be blessed by this story.”

According to the film’s promoters, many of the 100+ theaters that showed the film last weekend will show the film again this weekend. More showings have also been added in Honolulu, HI; San Luis Obispo, CA; Wichita, KS; Pinellas Park, FL; Normal, IL; Grundy City, IA; and Bend, OR.

Information on theater locations is available at the film’s website, AloneYetNotAlone.com.
