The Identical, starring Ray Liotta, Ashley Judd, Seth Green, and Blake Rayne is a redemptive movie about a young man, the son of a preacher, who rejects his father's desire for him to join the ministry and instead embarks on a career as a rock singer. As he struggles to pursue his dream and rise to stardom, he finds love, pain, success, failure and ultimately uncovers a hidden family secret that reveals who he really is. The Identical is a captivating story about a family restored and a life discovered that lifts your soul and warms your heart.
The DVD also has over 85 minutes of bonus content including, "Making The Identical," Behind the scenes, and deleted scenes.
The Identical was a great movie to watch for a date night, and yet is also one that I would have been okay to watch with my children if they were a little bit older (there are topics in the movie beyond their understanding at only six and eight years old), and not be embarassed to watch with my parents either. The movie is suitable for those 12+, and is rated PG. running about 102 minutes.
The actors did a fantastic job of drawing you into the story from the very start of the movie, and it's the plot and characters that kept my attention, as well as the absolutely fantastic music. Seriously, as good as the acting was, the music made this movie. There is everything from Gospel to pop to rock to country and everything in between. Sure, it's a "typical" faith based movie and has the typical cheesiness seen in such movies, but this movie was one that will stay a part of my movie collection for a long time to come. The themes of being true to one's self, following God's call on our live despite what other's may want for us, and God's redemption are strong throughout the movie as well. The movie was filled with great moments, where you will laugh, cry and be cheering on all the characters as they journey through life's choices.
I highly recommend this DVD and give it a thumbs up.
