The Identical tells the compelling story of twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression. DREXEL HEMSLEY becomes an iconic 50’s rock ’n’ roll star, while 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 Drecel 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.

Check out the trailer:

The Identical sneaks up on you- it starts as one thing (a retelling of the Elvis story) and then holds you as it becomes a tale of  the prodigal son, of redemption and love. As Ryan rejects his father’s dreams for him and seaches out his dreams, he find the human condition- love, pain, success, failure and secrets. How the family deals with the truth finally being set free and finding their new paths will warm your heart and keep you glued to the screen! This is not a movie to be missed, Liotta really steals the movie in such a subtle way, that you will forget all his previous performances and be struck with how great an actor he is! All the actors give great performances and you'll wonder how this movie didn't get more press and fame when it was released. It is a great movie to watch as a family!

The DVD contains over 85 minutes of bonus content, including “Making The Identical,” Behind the Scenes, and Deleted Scenes, that really flesh out the movie and give it even more meaning!! I'm thrilled to be able to offer a copy to one lucky BTHM reader!
