Same Kind Of Different As Me

1 hr 59 min

PG13

'Nobody can help everybody, but everybody can help somebody.' Words of wisdom from a homeless drifter; words that never would be shared with the world if not for a wayward husband, a forgiving wife, and an unforgettable true story that brought the three of them together. With more money than they could ever possibly need, Ron and Debbie Hall have everything they could ever want ... except for a loving marriage. When Ron's unfaithfulness is brought to light, Debbie invites him to stay--as long as he remains truthful and does what she asks of him. But when her request includes serving the homeless at an inner-city rescue mission, Ron would prefer to write a large check instead. Guided by her faith and spurred on by the dream of a homeless man she senses will change their city, Debbie befriends a disenfranchised man named Denver. More surprisingly, so does Ron. Despite vast differences, their lives begin to intersect and they all are changed...forever. Based on an unforgettable true story of forgiveness, friendship, family, and faith, SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME opens in theatres October 20. With two Academy AwardA winners and two nominees, the film's outstanding cast brings to life the New York Times bestseller that interweaves stories of international art dealer Ron Hall (Greg Kinnear), his grace-giving wife Debbie (Renee Zellweger), their unexpected friend Denver (Djimon Hounsou), and Ron's estranged father Earl (Jon Voight).
