    Same Kind of Different as Me (Blu-ray) review

    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 (Greg Kinnear, Heaven Is For Real) and his wife Debbie (Renée Zellweger, Bridget Jones’s Diary), who seemingly have the perfect life. But when their faith and family are tested, an unlikely bond with a homeless drifter (Djimon Hounsou, Blood Diamond) 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.

    My Thoughts
    I like both Kinnear’s and Zellweger’s work, so when I saw this come across my email it looked like something I’d enjoy. Wow, what an understatement! This is an excellent film in so many ways. The story is moving, the acting outstanding, and it will pull on your emotional strings as it tells the true story of how one man could change one’s outlook on life in a very short period of time.

    Kinnear stars as real-life Ron Hall, a man who was successful in business, but a failure in his personal life. Willing to do anything to repair the broken relationship with his wife, he volunteers with her at a soup kitchen where they meet a homeless man that will not only transform their life, but this relationship will end up changing countless lives along the way.

    Special Features:

    • Deleted & Extended Scenes
    • The Making of Same Kind of Different As Me
    • Filming in Mississippi

    This is an excellent family film that I will definitely be revisiting when my kids are home from college next month. It’s a moving story of how one man can impact so many lives. Definitely check this one out!
