Storyline

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 ...

Excellent Family Movie
9 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent movie. One of the best I have seen in a very long time. It thrills me that I can take my 3 children to a movie and not have to worry about what they are going to see or hear. The movie made me laugh, cry and even dance in my seat a little. The story shows that any dream is possible when God is involved. It also teaches you to follow your dreams. Blake Rayne is a very talented young man and brings so much depth and emotion to his role. Ray Liotta does a role that we are not used to him doing, and he nailed it. This, once again, proves that he is one of the best actors ever. Seth Green is very entertaining and funny. He learned to play the drums specifically for this role and did an amazing job. One of the neatest things about this is that some of it was filmed in my hometown. And seeing places I recognized was neat. I will be seeing this again and will be purchasing this as soon as it comes out on DVD. If you haven't seen it go. It is touching and rewarding. I hope to see many more films from this writer and company.
