At first, I thought, “Oh no, this is going to be a cheesy religious movie of some kind” but I changed that thinking quickly. It turned out to be extremely thought provoking on several levels. It made me want to do more with my life, reach out to others, and be a better person. Can’t beat that for $5.50! I’m telling everyone I know that they should see it.
Same Kind of Different as Me is a powerful character driven film. Actor, Djimon Hounsou’s excellent portrayal of Denver, a colored homeless man who through divine intervention becomes friends with a wealthy white couple, (played convincingly by Greg Kinnear and Renee Zellweger) is flawless. The journey they’re taken on changes them all for the better.
The movie reminded me of some of the character driven classics made by Frank Capra.
That this movie has not received the publicity and advanced advertising that it truly deserves is shameful — the producers and production studio should be ashamed of themselves and they will reap their due reward from low attendance and most likely box office profit loss. This film definitely is worth its proverbial weight (cost) in gold. First and foremost is the plot itself, which propels the human instinct of avoidance of the uncomfortable, as with dirty homeless people, to a higher plane of reaching out, in caring rather than invasive ways, in order to actually help those less fortunate despite their social handicaps. That there is a Christian spirit about this movie is without doubt, but there is no specific religious dogma or theology. There is no “action”, there is no graphic violence, there is no nudity, there is no profanity — how completely refreshing in a movie. It is all character and dialog driven — the acting is absolutely top notch, the dialog thoughtful and smart. The theme: reconciliation in all of our weakened or seemingly broken relationships if possible, with the onus being on ourselves to make the effort, in other words doing what we can to heal ourselves, and then being able to effectively, meaningfully reach out to and help those less fortunate, with respect rather than pity. This movie is a true treasure which, sadly I fear, will be missed by a very large audience due to lack of effective promotion.
Even though I’m not attracted to most Christian films, I really appreciated the quality of the story, casting, acting and shooting on this film and I’d love to see more like it. So often, our largest and closest movie theater can go for weeks without one movie worth seeing. Kudos to Pure Flix for their work on this … and blessings on your future efforts to do similarly.
