Different Kinds is a low-budget feature, shot in Northern Colorado over the summer of 2006 and completed in June 2007. Starring Jackie Billotte (Collegetown), Chris Borden (Vitreous Floaters) and Gina Di Tullio (Camille’s Magic), Different Kinds follows the story of Jared (BORDEN) who, in his desperation to beat Sal (DITULLIO) to Denver and prevent the delivery of an important package, takes Natalie (BILLOTTE) hostage on a cross-country race towards Denver. Jackie Billotte received a best actress nomination for her role in the film from the 2007 B-Movie Film Festival in Syracuse, New York.
Film Synopsis (written by Heith Carnahan in his review on Movie-Popcorn.com):
Jared (BORDEN) and Sal (DITULLIO) are co-conspirators with an ambiguous past and a very tenuous partnership. These two low-rent thugs have been hired to deliver a package to Denver, but Jared soon discovers the item is far too dangerous to ever reach its destination. His decision to prevent its arrival earns him a knock on the head, and when he comes to, the package and his former partner in crime have vanished.
Enter Natalie (BILLOTTE) and Kate (RODEMICH), two friends on a road trip about to go terribly wrong. In a desperate attempt to remain invisible, Jared randomly kidnaps Natalie for her car and realizes too late that he’s just snatched a girl with whom he has a history.
With the delivery deadline quickly approaching, Jared must find a way to beat Sal to the dropoff at all costs while managing his feisty hostage — and his feelings for her — in the process, the combination of which could get any number of people killed.
What critics are saying about Different Kinds…
“Squeezes your psyche into submission with a gritty, rainy-day plot punctuated by a minimalist score.” – Heith Carnahan, Movie-Popcorn.com
“Something original… finally… something original.” – MoviesMadeMe.com
“A best actress nod simply must go to Gina DiTullio as the nearly unflappable Sal. DiTullio’s frighteningly level, steely performance is as consistent as it is convincing, her onscreen presence at once sexy and imposing.” – Movie-Popcorn.com
