The driving force in the story is the need for father and daughter to bond, forge a relationship, and find new meaning in their lives. Both Toby Keith and Lindsey Haun give honest, realistic performances, and the connection between father and daughter is strong and believable, especially since the daughter is following in her father's footsteps as a singer and songwriter. If you enjoy films like Almost Famous, Crazy Heart or Tender Mercies, then I suggest you ignore the film critics who panned Broken Bridges, and give the film a chance.
