“Same Kind of Different As Me” — which hit theaters in the fall of 2017 and now comes to home video on February 20 — is yet another example of how faith-based and faith-friendly movies are slowly making a return to the mainstream in Hollywood.

Starring top-notch actors Greg Kinnear, Renée Zellweger, Djimon Honsou, and Jon Voight, the film was distributed by Pure Flix Entertainment. It tells the true story of a struggling couple (Kinear and Zellweger) who meet a seemingly violent homeless man (Honsou). Slowly, the three befriend each other and begin growing together thanks to their unique relationships.

Though a vast majority of Hollywood’s content is still moving in a cynical and dark direction, “Same Kind of Different As Me” is one of the few films with a positive message to emerge recently. Along with “Let There Be Light” and a few other projects, it attempts to provide hope at a time of great cultural strife.

It’s a movie very much relevant to our still-ongoing cultural divides. It deals with both racism and how people from very different backgrounds can help and love one another.

Here, LifeZette presents an exclusive behind-the-scenes clip, below, from "Same Kind of Different As Me."

In it, the filmmakers discuss the rebuilding and revitalizing of various locations in Jackson, Mississippi — activities that surely helped the movie itself but also benefited the community, which so graciously welcomed the film into its midst.

"Same Kind of Different As Me" is available now digitally; you can preorder it on home video here.
