Christopher Webster [Celluloid 02.10.16] United Kingdom scifi thriller



Our master chief, quietearth, first brought Identicals to our attention last spring when he uncovered the first teaser trailer. Back then, the film was called "Brand New-U", but since it was picked up by distributor MGM it, itself, has been given a new identity.

Directed by Simon Pummell, Indenticals follows a similar line of speculation as the classic 60s film, Seconds, where it is possible to start life over again.

It is scheduled to hit iTunes on March 25, 2016.


Synopsis:
The organization Brand New-U identifies networks of Identicals—people who walk like you, talk like you, but are walking through different, better lives—and helps their customers make a life upgrade: eliminating the better-life donor, and relocating their client to that brand new life.

Slater seems to have the perfect life, the perfect job and the perfect girlfriend. But when Slater’s girlfriend is abducted by Brand New-U, and a corpse left in her place, he is forced to become an Identical. As he moves through a series of parallel lives, he becomes more and more obsessed with finding his girlfriend, but what he must find in the end is himself.



Identitcals stars Lachlan Nieboer, Nora-Jane Noone and Nick Blood.




Recommended Release: Seconds
