A powerfully redemptive story about a young man in search of both his purpose and his identity, The Identical arrives on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack, DVD, VOD and Digital HD January 13 from Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) and City of Peace Films. Featuring over 20 original songs, all produced and co-written by Motown legend, Jerry Marcellino, the “wholesome and faith-friendly” (Catholic News Service) film boasts an all-star cast, including Ray Liotta (Goodfellas, Field of Dreams), Ashley Judd (Dolphin Tale 2, Divergent), Seth Green (“Family Guy,” “Robot Chicken”), Brian Geraghty (“Ray Donovan,” “Boardwalk Empire,” The Hurt Locker) and newcomer Blake Rayne.
The Identical follows twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression, Drexel Hemsley and Ryan Wade (both portrayed by Rayne). Drexel, raised by his birth parents, grows up to achieve rock-n-roll stardom twenty years later, and Ryan, adopted by a reverend and his wife, struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his parents who believe he has been called on by God to become a preacher. Against his parents’ wishes, Ryan chases a musical career, embarking on an unpredictable journey where he eventually finds his stride, ironically enough, as a Drexel Hemsley impersonator, and uncovers his hidden family secret, leading him to question everything he’s ever believed about God, family and his own identity.
