I really like the concept of The Identical. How two people biologically related but separated at a young age can still be so alike. It begs the question of nature vs. nurture - where you see Drexel drinking and the pastor's kid (PK) not wanting to touch alcohol but where they both sound and look like Elvis.
There were many touching scenes in this movie. When Ryan unknowingly meets his biological mother, when he stands up to his father about not becoming a pastor, when he stands up to a racist police officer, and the final few scenes. I thought it was beautiful. A great story involving redemption and family, not much else I can ask for in a movie these days.
The only thing I didn't like was when Drexel and Ryan grew their hair out. Oh they should have kept to the Elvis hair. But it was moving on into the late 60s so I guess that's that.
Go ahead and pick up a ticket this weekend to see The Identical.
