"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 is the dialogue." Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The Broken Circle Breakdown," like the bluegrass music girding it, has a way of evoking any number of emotions. It is at turns sweet, romantic, funny and heartbreaking. More than anything, though, it's just plain affecting, a profound tale of love, loss and in the end life, in all its bitter beauty."
Mike Scott, The Times-Picayune
