We received a copy of the Identical Soundtrack Sampler for review. All reviews expressed are our own.
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.
THE IDENTICAL Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Sampler 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 Knows It” and “Nashville Tonight.” Sounding much like the original Elvis, the soundtrack is great for road trips and the morning trek to school. It felt reminiscent of the King and recently came along with us on our own trip down to Nashville – the home of Opryland & country music. You’ll enjoy the sounds of this CD while moving, grooving & driving! Not to mention the fact that the movie looks stellar with some great names and storyline. In theaters, September 5th, head out this weekend to see it yourself!
