- Great choice for date night! by Ellen on 2/5/2015
Product provided for my honest review.
The Identical DVD is a family story about the son of a preacher. His father wants him to join the ministry and follow in his footsteps. He tries seminary school but realizes that he just doesn’t have the calling. Instead he feels drawn to music. He realizes that he looks and sounds just like a famous rock star and this realization leads to him discovering a family secret that his father doesn’t want him to know.
The Identical starts out in the 30s during the Great Depression and then follows his life up through the 60s and 70s. His style is very similar to Elvis’ music style but the story is all his own and is very touching. The Identical includes 7 bonus features including behind the scenes, deleted scenes and theatrical trailers. It is rated PG for some teenage themes and smoking but I it is approved by Dove.org for ages 12 and up.
This movie was a great movie for my husband and I for our movie date night. I love the music from the 50s and 60s and the story itself really drew me in. The bonus content was very interesting and there are over 85 minutes of extras to watch. My husband was really impressed that big name stars like Seth Green and Ray Liotta were in the film as well.

Original music written in 2014, authentically reflects the 1950s, 60s, and 70s portrayed in the film, The Identical. The story begins during the Depression era of the 1930s. At the end of a growing crop season, a young couple have newborn sons. Attending a tent revival, the husband hears the preacher say he and his wife have not been able to bear a child. Concerned for lack of providing for two children, one child is given to them with the promise that the true identify will not be revealed until the death of the birthing parents. Both sons are drawn to music, one publicly and the other naturally talented but attending school to follow in the footsteps of his father.
The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps.
Can you relinquish your dreams for someone else? Ryan Wade's father enlists him in the army after being called by the police to come and get Ryan at a roadhouse across the county line. Ryan is drawn by music new to him, that resonates within his heart. The movie ends in the 1970s, following Ryan's dream brought alive upon winning a contest reflecting public singer, Drexel Hemsley. Being encouraged by his wife, Jenny, Ryan signs with an agent and tours at county fairs and concert venues.
