"Same But Different not only surprises with genuine humor within an adorable romance but also boasts strong representation with indigenous actors, learning disabilities and a look at entrenched patriarchy while maintaining respect for tradition."
Chris Kryaninko - Out To The Movies (Seattle, USA)
IT'S THE SAME, BUT DIFFERENT
SAME BUT DIFFERENT: A TRUE NEW ZEALAND LOVE STORY is a feature length film about it's filmmakers, Nikki Si'ulepa and Rachel Aneta Wills' real beginnings in love and is the first film of it's kind to come out of New Zealand.
In a world where the veil is quickly lifting on the vessels in which love is presented, SBD is a story that couldn't be more relevant and necessary in today's awakening times.
This modern day romantic comedy busts stereotypes, crosses cultures, and positively represents women and diversity on the silver screen making it a festival darling, audience favourite and Kiwi classic.
