The Identical

Film Description:

In 1936, William and Helen Hemsley (Brian Geraghty, Amanda Crew) welcome identical twin boys into the world. But their joy is quickly tempered by a sobering realization; how could they give these children any kind of a life beyond the desperate poverty that haunted many families in the midst of the Great Depression? When evangelist Reece Wade (Ray Liotta) reveals that he and his wife Louise (Ashley Judd) cannot have children, William feels the Lord’s prompting to give them one of the infant boys. Both brothers are born with passion, drive and awesome musical talent, but take very separate, yet converging paths.

Drexel Hemsley (Blake Rayne) rises like a comet and changes the music world forever. His adopted brother, Ryan Wade (also played by Blake Rayne) struggles to find the purpose for his life. All the way into manhood he wrestles with pleasing Reverend Wade, his loving but controlling father, who is convinced his son Ryan is called into the ministry.

Ryan is encouraged by his loving and supportive wife Jenny (Erin Cottrell) and lifelong friends Dino and Avi (Seth Green, Joe Pantoliano) to follow his musical dreams. And oh, can he sing, just like his world famous twin! “The Identical” is a captivating journey spanning five decades from the 1930’s through the 1970’s.

This story is about the restoration and the reconciliation of a family broken apart by culture, creed and tradition. Movie-going audiences will be drawn to this timeless tale of love, hope, and redemption that speaks to all generations.

    Not only is the rock n’ roll music original (all produced by Legendary Jerry Marcellino and his son Yochanan Marcellino), it will have you dancing in and out of the theater! The acting was superb (no matter what critics have said–the acting touched me to the core) with an all star cast including Ray Liotta who plays a pastor, and the story will have you laughing and crying. It’s a heart- touching film about adoption, redemption, love, and ultimately finding out who you are. If you have not seen it yet, go take your entire family ASAP! It’s in my top 5 favorite movies-of-all-time- list! I got to meet the main actor, Blake Rayne, a little while back and we are SO happy for this amazing film! I hope this movie’s powerful message touches millions of lives!

    I just love all the different fashions and colors covering three eras! I love the old cars, art, and the rock n’ roll that totally makes the movie! My husband and I came home literally dancing around our living room floor! We can’t wait until the full soundtrack comes out! Go see this movie!Take your whole family, including grandma! 😉
