Movie: Love Can Build A Bridge., 24 December 2005
Author: bron7223 from United States

I think "Love Can Build A Bridge" was an excellent movie. I never knew anything about the Judds before seeing the movie. This movie touch every emotion, I felt the pain the family was going through, I could laugh when they laugh. I cried. And I learn something new about music. I hope I can find it on DVD, so I can add it to my collection of movies. I just wish it was more on Ashley Judd. If possible I would watch this movie once a month or when ever I feel like I am in a tough situation. This movie encourages someone or a family that obstacles in life can be over came. If I was a critic, I would give it five stars and recommend everyone to view it.
