Based on The New York Times best-selling book, and recipient of the Dove Foundation seal of approval for ages 12+, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME follows successful art dealer Ron Hall (Kinnear) and his wife Debbie (Zellweger, Bridget), who seemingly have the perfect life. But when their faith and family are tested, an unlikely bond with a homeless drifter (Djimon Hounsou) leads them on a remarkable journey that forges an everlasting friendship. “Loaded with surprising twists and turns” (Jim Ferguson, KGUN9 ABC Tucson), SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME shows how a simple act of kindness can change everything. Sometimes people come into your life at the right time and you just hit it off, but other times someone comes into your life that you didn’t know you needed at just the right time. This film is truly a heartwarming story that makes everyone more aware of their situations and brings to life the human spirit.
