Tagline: The shocking story of identical twins... One too good to die. The other too evil to live.

Plot: This quirky comic drama from writer-director Alan Rudolph stars Matthew Modine in a dual role as twins separated from their parents and each other at birth. Both live in a violent, retro-futuristc city called Empire. One brother, Frankie Ace, an ice-cool gangster, while the other, Henry, is a clumsy, insecure nobody working at the garage of his adopted father (M. Emmett Walsh). When Sonya (Tyra Ferrell), a nurse with aspirations to be a writer finds a mysterious note in the hand of a dead woman, she begins setting the wheels in motion for a reconciliation between these two distinctly opposite versions of the same person, with unforeseeably catastrophic results.

A colorful cast of co-stars includes: Marisa Tomei as a prostitute living next door to Henry; Lara Flynn Boyle as his shy love interest; Kevin J. O'Connor as her equally insecure brother, Fred Ward as a gangland kingpin, and Lori Singer as Frankie’s admiring, shallow wife. Brilliant color-infused cinematography by Elliot Davis and a haunting soundtrack from Terphe Rypdal help make Rudolph's enigmatic discourse on identity and duality an enjoyable, moving film.
