"The Identical" is the type of movie that would be great on the Hallmark Channel or even TBN, for that matter. It's a movie that deals with a lot of elements that are both familiar and fundamental to movies of this kind: It features Scripture, Southern nostalgia and, of course, the birth of rock 'n' roll.
