The Identical {a FlyBy review and giveaway}

We always love a chance to watch a good, family-friendly movie.  So reviewing The Identical was an easy decision.

Especially given that there are some familiar names in here.  That always makes my husband more interested.

About the movie:
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 us. The Identical is a captivating story about a family restored and a life discovered that lifts your soul and warms your heart.
The movie starts off with the birth of twin boys, to a poor family, during the depression.  At a revival meeting, the father feels God is telling him to give away one of the twins, Ryan, to the preacher.  The majority of the movie takes place with Ryan as a young man and then an adult, and you see him striving to balance what he wants from life with what his father wants from life.

The music in the film is a lot of fun, and definitely sounds like it could have been written in the various eras represented (50s, 60s, 70s).  The acting was wonderful as well, with some very believable characters.  I was particularly drawn to both of the mothers.

And then there is also nearly an hour and a half of bonus features.  Those were even more fun, especially the part about the preemies.

Check out the trailer:

Hello. I wanted to let you know I added this to my low entry linky here:

Also, I wanted to let you know about an event on my blog. I stumbled onto your twitter page and saw your picture advertising the anti-trafficking event in November. Well, as it turns out, this month (Jan 15 - Feb 15) I'm hosting an event on my blog to raise awareness of modern slavery. I use giveaways to draw people in to learn more about slavery today. Thought you might be interested...maybe even mention something about it on your blog.

I've seen the movie trailer for the movie and it looks like it would bee a good one. My favorite song in the 50s was by Elvis - "Love Me Tender".
