Karen Kingsbury’s The Bridge Part One (2015) Rated TV-G

Karen Kingsbury's The BridgeThe Bridge is a bookstore that brings people together. At a local university, two young people meet on the first day of classes and become study partners, using The Bridge as a place to study. Based on the book by Karen Kingsbury. Starring Katie Findlay, Wyatt Nash, Andrea Brooks, Faith Ford, Ted McGinley.

This film felt a little rushed. I think they could have saved time by setting up the story of The Bridge through flashbacks.  However, I think the real problem had to do with incorporating too many story lines into the movie instead of focusing more on the main characters’ development.  In book form, I’m sure it works well, but as a movie, it is too much.  Still, the story itself is intriguing and sweet.

There has been some backlash about the second part not being released until next year, but I don’t really see how that’s such a big deal.  The story will pick up seven years later, and will probably function well as both a sequel and a stand-alone movie.  There are a few glitches in this movie, but it is quite pleasant overall.  It is worth a watch.
