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 ...

Surprisingly Good
9 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a Christian that is very wary of faith based films because they are usually cheesy and badly done. The Identical is not your typical faith based film. While there is a preacher character and faith is discussed some, there is no preachy message and no altar calls in the movie. This is just a wholesome movie that was surprisingly good and is safe for the whole family. All my kids and my wife enjoyed the movie. My wife did say that the whole Elvis thing going on was a little weird, but at the same time it made the film interesting.

I am disappointed that this film made so little money. It deserves to have been viewed more and to have made more money. I'm not sure if there was a lot of marketing for this film. Hopefully, it will have a greater life on Netflix and on DVD.
