Live life with everything you've got.
Set in suburan America in 1965, Different Drummers is based on a true story of friendship and adventure, that will forever change the lives of two unique boys.

Different Drummers is a deeply inspirational and transcendent family film – based on a true story – about the unusual spiritual journey and unlikely friendship of two boys growing up in Spokane, Washington in the mid 1960s. Eleven-year-old David, wheelchair-bound by muscular dystrophy, is growing progressively weaker, while his friend, Lyle (10), has a problem with an increasingly high energy level.

David informs Lyle that their teacher is about to die and states that the source of this sad revelation is none other than God. When their teacher does die, a doubtful and confused Lyle feels he must find out for certain if God exists. Inspired by his TV idol, Jack LaLanne, and LaLanne’s message of “working a miracle through intestinal fortitude and willpower,” Lyle convinces David that he can teach him to run, secretly viewing this as a way to test the existence of God.

A pact is made, and when Lyle begins to twist the rules in a desperate attempt to give his friend some of his own excess energy, they come face to face with life’s most transcendent and painful truths – and Lyle’s question is ultimately answered, in a way he never could have imagined.

Powerful love story of true friendship. What joy and agony! Faith and courage!
3 of 5 Stars! Different Drummers - DVDHi G, 07/28/2017
It's a great movie for what someone can do for someone else regarding friendship, but if you are serious about following Jesus and the principles that you are teaching your children and who God is, what His character is,how His love is, then this is not a movie that I will recommend.There is no mention of Jesus, not ever another friend that are brought to Christ,no parent telling the children about God and teaching them about him,no mention of the Bible or any scripture or discernment and advertising it as a Christian movie is false, all hope is given in an imaginable way and not as the true hope and life of what your life can be in Christ through His love and saving.Then at least be honest and say its just a memoir of a boy with an illness and a great friendship instead of trying to make it a movie where its an example for children how to live for Jesus,that is not what this is.

Great movie! It included a wonderful mix of comedy, suspense, and tragedy. But I suggest having tissues handy for the end.

Good family movie with great Christian values. The only thing was, it was very slow and we were dozing off!
