What if every choice we made had already been made for us? What if there really were no coincidences in life and our destinies were already predetermined? Ten strangers with secrets are brought together in as savage rainstorm: A limo driver (John Cusack – Being John Malkovich), an ‘80s TV star (Rebecca DeMornay – The Hand That Rocks The Cradle), a cop (Ray Liotta – Goodfellas) who is transporting a killer (Jake Busey – Enemy Of The State), a call girl (Amanda Peet – Igby Goes Down), a pair of newlyweds (Clea DuVall and William Lee Scott) and a family in crisis (John C. McGinley, Leila Kenzle, Bret Loehr), all take shelter at a desolate motel run by a nervous night manager (John Hawkes). Relief in finding shelter is quickly replaced with fear as then ten travelers begin to die, one by one. They soon realize that, if they are to survive, they’ll have to uncover the secret that has brought them all together.
A clever thriller

Identity brings together ten people connected by a single and surreal link, nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a hidden agenda and dark secrets. The ensemble cast is great; the plot is clever, engaging and with a spectacular twist in the tale. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys genuinely creepy murder mysteries.
