Same Kind of Different As Me

Some films are good, some films do good, and the rare ones are those that do both.

Same Kind of Different As Me is based on the bestselling book by Ron Hall, and stars Renee Zellweger, Greg Kinnear, and Djimon Hounsou. It tells the story of Ron Hall, a prosperous Art dealer who, in attempts to make amends with his wife after being found out for adultery, agrees to help volunteer in a local homeless shelter. Whilst there the couple meet the enigmatic and sage-like Denver who teaches the couple lessons they could have never imagined.

Where the book did good by changing lives through inspiring action, the film crew and cast did one better.  

They changed lives where they were.

In an interview for the film, Renee Zellweger shared what the Director said they would do whilst filming Same Kind of Different as Me. “Instead of doing that Hollywood thing where you gon into a town, and you build a set, and then tear it down and say ‘Thank you very much.’ We’re actually going to use the budget, find a mission that serves, or underserves, the homeless community in Jackson, and we’re gonna transform that place.” The film crew and cast saw the opportunity to live out the message of their movie by transforming a community, providing means to bring hope to the hopeless.

For many, the impact of the book alone was life changing. It force readers to see those around them not as just rich or poor, but as people loved by God, and in need of compassion  from those around them. And for many more, the film will do just the same.

Due for release on DVD on 19th March 2018, you can pre-order your own copy of Same Kind of Different As Me here for just £8.99. You can watch the trailer below.
