My friends, I haven’t given a movie review in a while…mainly because there have been few choices that I would recommend.
I like to keep my family informed…and I tell “Only daughter” of the movies that are a must see….
……and then there are those I tell her to wait until they come out on DVD , OR I say…
…….don’t waste your time or money on that one.
If you look back at my Entertainment/Movie Review category, you will see I tell it like it is, in my opinion of course.
For a few months, I had been hearing the murmuring that there was a movie based on a true story coming out in October and that the cast had at least three Academy Award winning actors playing lead roles.
The actual movie had been made a couple years before and had release dates postponed…. at least a couple times.
My curiosity was piqued.
Why the delays in releasing this movie?
When the movie finally made the movie theaters on Oct 20th….I knew I had to go see it.
Soooo, the Captain and I took an afternoon off last week and went to see “Same Kind Of Different As Me” and we were not disappointed.
This movie is a must see in my opinion and below is a short synopsis:
Ron Hall sold paintings worth millions of dollars. He was living the good life. So good, and yet he walked down a path that almost destroyed his marriage. Against all odds, his wife Debbie forgave him, and God slowly restored their broken marriage.
However, there is more to this movie than the obvious.
It is interesting to note that Ron Hall wrote the book of the same title, which became a New York Times bestseller for 3 straight years.
I have to ask you.
What single thing could take this story and spread it to so many people … and change so many hearts?
Only the latent power of kindness, and the lives it changes forever.
I have to also tell you that my emotions during this movie, went from compassion, to injustice, to pain, to selflessness, to happiness, to sadness, to thankfulness, to understanding, and to a realization and affirmation that our faith is what separates us from all the elements of life.
As the title of this movie attests…we enter life all the same….and then, people make mistakes, we all make mistakes and we all make decisions that could be good or bad.
The old sayings “…walk a mile in my shoes” or “There by the grace of God, go I”…. is very relevant here.
This movie reminds us that we need to stand back and look at the bigger picture of life. …and our purpose for being here.
Our God is an all knowing and all seeing God. The author and finisher of our faith and this movie reveals there is always hope, no matter the circumstances.
I hope you get a chance to see this movie, it will tug at your heart strings.
Below is the movie trailer…play it and see if it is something you would like to see.
There is a quote in the movie said by Denver: “Whether we’re rich or poor, or somewhere in between, we’re all homeless, just working our way back home,”
My dear readers, you and I can look for simple ways to show kindness, and make a difference, don’t ya think?
