"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 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."
I received a free signed copy of the The Identical Original Motion Picture Soundtrack sampler in order to perform this review, which features 12 of the 20 original songs by Jerry Marcellino and Yochanan Marcellino from the film, including "Your Love's Keepin' Me Tonight," "City Lights," "Angel of Mine," "Everybody Know It" and "Nashville Tonight." The Identical has both an amazing story line and cast and from what I can gather it depicts the life of Elvis. I'm definitely an Elvis fan so I really wanted to like this soundtrack more than I did. It's not a terrible soundtrack though. It's just not really my type of music. I guess I was just expecting something a little different, something more lively and upbeat, something more young Elvis. Regardless, I think with such a strong story line and cast, The Identical will still be a big hit at the box office and I can't wait to see it.
The Identical comes to theaters September 5th!
