We don’t get out to the movie theater much because of time, expense and babysitters, so when my husband and I do go, it has to be worth it. A few weeks ago, we were watching the movie All Saints and saw the preview for another upcoming inspirational flick: Same Kind of Different as Me. Turns out, it’s based on a true story and a book by the same name. How I missed this story until now is a mystery to me, but it has my attention now.
The gist: a couple in the midst of a marital crisis find their lives transformed by befriending a homeless man. That’s the super simplistic theme of the movie, so I can’t wait to see the whole story when it hits the big screen on October 20th.
Here’s the trailer if you want to take a peek for yourself:
Chills, tears, goosebumps: I’ve got them all, and I’ll probably have to pack some tissues when I go see the movie.
In a behind-the-scenes clip, Greg Kinnear, who plays one of the main roles, Ron Hall, says this is an important story because it’s about forgiveness and about people who got more out of something than they gave, for the good of an entire city.
What a message of hope for a world desperate for small acts of kindness!
You can watch that full behind-the-scenes clip here.
I have two tickets to this movie to give away to one lucky (U.S. resident) winner! From now until Monday, October 16th, you can leave a comment on this blog post.
Tell me if you’ve heard of this story, what you thought after you watched the trailer, how a friendship with an unlikely person has changed you.
Then, on Oct. 16, I’ll pick a winner from the comments and send you two Fandango codes, good for this movie only to be used by Nov. 2, at any movie theater in the country that accepts Fandango tickets. (I am received two tickets myself as part of the promotion for this movie.
I hope you get a chance to see this movie!
