Same Kind of Different As Me, the film starring Greg Kinnear and Renee Zellwegger based on the bestselling book by Ron Hall and Denver Moore, is releasing to home video next month. After a box office run that netted $6.5 million and promoted by Christian film company Pure Flix, the film will be available on digital outlets Feb. 9 and on DVD and Blu-Ray on Feb. 20 from Paramount Pictures. I spoke to Ron Hall last year prior to the release of the film and it is quite an extraordinary story. I thought the film was well produced and others who I viewed it with visibly moved and spoke highly of it.
The official synopsis of the film is:
