The movie "The Identical" tells the story of a pastor's son who feels a call to sing, not preach, learns a shocking secret about his life that explains his past and shapes his future in "THE IDENTICAL," a drama set against the backdrop of rock'n'roll's 1950s heyday. The Identical powerfully explores two questions that constantly tug at our souls: "Who am I?" and "What am I here for?"
RYAN WADE (Blake Rayne) grows up during the Great Depression as the only child of a country pastor (Ray Liotta) and his wife (Ashley Judd), unaware he is not their biological son, but one of a pair of identical twins born to a poor couple in the church who gave him to the Wade family and kept his brother to raise themselves. Ryan grows up encouraged by the Wades to pursue the pastorate - a goal he grows increasingly disinterested in as he begins to dabble in his lifelong love: music.
Tensions with the Rev. Wade come to a head when Ryan decides to drop out of seminary and pursue music full time 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. But when the two men's destinies tragically collide, Ryan discovers Drexel is more than just his inspiration: he's his identical twin. A reeling Ryan is left to question everything he's ever believed about God, family and his own identity.
