  • The non-linear structure works extremely well, making the drama a bracing emotional roller coaster of feel-good/feel-bad turns. show more

  • A superb tearjerker in between beautiful bluegrass ballads. show more

  • Rare, too, is the way The Broken Circle Breakdown incorporates music into its narrative. The songs - traditional bluegrass and country, and a clutch of new ones rooted in same - are as integral to the characters and their relationships as the dialogue. show more
