Faith Driven Consumer Awards Movie with 4.5-Star Rating
Faith Driven Consumer™ (FDC)—representing 41 million Americans who spend $2 trillion annually, has earned wide recognition both for its corporate FaithEqualityIndex.com rating system and its Faith-Friendly Film Review entertainment rating system.
Coming to theaters nationwide Friday, Oct. 20, “Same Kind of Different as Me” has been awarded a 4.5-star rating, meaning the film is strongly centered in a Biblical worldview, but requires some parental guidance. Based on a true story and book by the same title, “Same Kind of Different as Me” tackles the challenging issues of race and homelessness head on, and ultimately delivers a much-needed, timely and hope-filled message of love and understanding to a world that continues to struggle with racial strife and tension.
Chris Stone, Founder of Faith Driven Consumer and Certified Brand Strategist, says, “Hollywood gets it right with ‘Same Kind of Different as Me’. Here we have a major studio producing a high-quality, faith-driven film with a highly acclaimed cast telling a story that effectively speaks into the climate of rancor and divisiveness in a respectful, redemptive and inspiring way.”
Stone continues, “’Same Kind of Different as Me’ represents a major step forward for a faith-driven film. While Christian faith is front and center, it’s not preachy or overbearing. And, given the timeliness of the subject matter, this film should resonate very well with both faith-driven and secular audiences alike—making it one of a few faith-themed films to date that has the ability to break out of the Christian box and positively impact the broader culture.”
FDC serves as a key resource for audiences and entertainment industry leaders alike, measuring the faith-compatibility of entertainment offerings and predicting how they will resonate. Faith Driven Consumer's Faith-Friendly Film Reviews are based on five core criteria: Overall Faith and/or Biblical Relevance; Faith-compatible Depiction of Characters and Character Relationships; Faith-compatible Depiction of Situations, Family Viewing Suitability; and Entertainment Value.
