Storyline

A military aircraft crash kills over a dozen Southern soldiers, including several from a small Southern town. The funeral draws several emigrated relatives home. Among them are fading country-singer Bo Price, absent father, and Angela Delton, workaholic 'single' mother of teenager Dixie Leigh, who can only be blackmail-lured along by permission to rejoin her Californian lover Kyle afterward. They're all confronted with each-other, their past and prospects, and bond after Leigh's shameless attitude misleads cocky local rascal Wyatt. Written by KGF Vissers

Review of Broken Bridges
10 September 2006 | by jazmonie1See all my reviews

I applaud Toby for this daring endeavor. He is a talent for sure, along with most of the cast. It was a good message movie, good music, with some humor, tears and leaves you with thinking about broken bridges in your own life. There were many broken up parts of the movie and I would have also liked to see more detail of a relationship mending between Bo & Angel. Lindsay was a shining star for sure; I hope she goes far.

All in all, I liked it but was not totally in love & I do not mean that bad, so fans, do not get all in an uproar. I am glad I saw it cause I am an avid Toby fan; but that does not mean I need to agree with all he does and I am entitled to my thoughts. It is not award winning material and no offense; but I will be surprised if it is picked up by many theaters with a long run. It was a feel good movie that I was glad to see away from all the violence that is out there. Keep up the good work Toby and I am sure you will only get better with more projects.
