Synopsis


The Identical
One man's passion for music leads him to question his faith and his identity following a shocking revelation about the family past in this musical drama set in the 1950, just as rock 'n' roll began to dominate the airwaves. All Ryan Wade (Blake Rayne) ever wanted was to make music. Ryan's dreams of performing on the stage before thousands of screaming fans are seemingly dashed, however, when his preacher father (Ray Liotta) and devout mother (Ashley Judd) pressure him to join the ministry. Later, with the support of his wife (Erin Cottrell), his best friend (Seth Green), and his manager (Joe Pantoliano), Ryan finds fame as "The Identical" -- a rock-and-roll singer who looks and sounds just like the legendary Drexel Hemsley. Meanwhile, as Ryan's desire to perform his own music begins to overshadow his hunger for the spotlight, a discovery regarding his origins during the Great Depression leads to a spiritual and existential crisis that threatens tragedy for both himself and the popular rocker he earns a living impersonating. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I saw this movie at the theater and I really enjoyed it. Some people might call it corny and out of touch, but I found it a heart-warming well told story with an awesome soundtrack. It was so much more than I expected. It is a story of hard times and sacrifice that that has to be made in desperate times. I don't want to give away too much of the story, but it is the story of twin brothers and how their lives are affected by a decision their parents had to make when they were born. I knew ten minutes into this movie that I would definitely buy it on blu ray when it came out. The quality of audio and video is top notch and I got it at Best Buy for a phenomenal price. I also bought the score and soundtrack and I play them all the time. I highly recommend this movie and the cd's. Fantastic!
