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.

Simply Outstanding!
7 July 2014 | by (Manassas VA) – See all my reviews

I had the great privilege of watching a pre release of this entire movie while at the MJAA's recent Messiah 2014 Conference. Let me just say that I was completely blown away by the heart touching story line,acting and all original music! Ray Lioda and Ashley Judd were incredible! I honestly foresee many Academy Award nominations as its really that stellar in so many categories. This movie will move you to joyful tears not once, but likely 5 times! Seriously, I am a guy and I usually don't ever cry but yet there I was, a grown man, weeping tears of sorrow and joy. (think emotional roller coaster like "Forrest Gump" but 3X) This movie will make a name for the new film director Dustin Marcellino. It is a wonderful safe family friendly movie for all to see

  • and Elvis trivia fans will find fascinating nuggets! Look forward to


watching it again this time with the entire family on the big screen Sept 5th.
