Synopsis:
The following is from the official DVD synopsis:

"Sometimes You Have to Go Back to Move Forward.

When a down and out country music singer (Toby Keith) is forced to face his past after the death of his brother, he returns home to find his high school sweetheart (Kelly Preston) and a 16-year-old daughter (Lindsay Haun) he's never met. Broken Bridges takes you back to small town America where important things matter like family, country and duty, and shows that sometimes by going back, you really can move forward.

Burt Reynolds co-stars as the gruff patriarch of Preston's small town family, while Tess Harper plays her nurturing mother. Willie Nelson and Anna Maria Horsford round out this truly diverse ensemble cast Broken Bridges also features a soundtrack full of memorable songs and marks Toby Keith's debut in a feature film lead role."

"Broken Bridges' is rated PG-13 for some violent and sexual content, and teen drinking.

CS Comment:
This seems like a perfect film for fans of country music, Willie Nelson, or Burt Reynolds. Who knew CMT was into making movies?

Available Tuesday, January 9
