Being released on DVD today, January 13th, THE IDENTICAL tells the story of twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression.  One twin, DREXEL HEMSLEY becomes an iconic 50’s rock ‘n’ roll star, while the other, RYAN WADE (Blake Rayne) struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his father. The Reverend Wade (Ray Liotta) and his wife (Ashley Judd) are sure their adopted son has been gifted and called by God to be a preacher. But Ryan challenges his parent’s vision for his life, and unflinchingly chooses to launch his own music career with his best friend (Seth Green). Encouraged by his wife (Erin Cottrell) and employer (Joe Pantoliano), Ryan embarks on an unpredictable, provocative path – performing the legendary music of Drexel Hemsley in sold out venues all across the country.

As the brothers destinies tragically collide, Ryan discovers that Drexel is his identical twin which leads him to question everything he’s ever believed about God, family and his own identity.  The Identical is a captivating story about a family restored and a life discovered that lifts your soul and warms your heart.

The DVD contains over 85 minutes of bonus content including “Making The Identical,” Behind the Scenes, and Deleted Scenes!

Chefy and I both really enjoyed the movie.  The story drew us in and the music kept us there.  I never like to tell too much about a movie because I do not want to give away the plot.  What I will tell you is that I was in tears when I put myself in the birth mother's shoes when she had to make the decision to separate her twins.  I felt for Ryan when he was being pushed by his father to go in to the ministry.  Following his dreams set in motion life changing moments that we all can identify with ourselves.   Chefy and I were pleased that this movie was one we felt could be enjoyed by the whole family.
