hat the movie's about:

After years of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are, Dave and Clarice Johnson have finally reached a breaking point in their marriage.

When Clarice is hurt in a car accident, the obvious truth that more than just her injuries need immediate attention is exposed.

Their odds of making it worsen as Clarice begins to see a physical therapist, and Dave develops a friendship with Julie and her teenage son Bryson. The acceptance and comfort he finds in them stirs his longing for a family and a passionate partner.

What the critics have to say:

"Not Easily Broken isn't perfect, but it is persuasive in its portrait of a husband and wife who must decide whether their frayed marriage is worth fighting to save."
- Glenn Whipp, Los Angeles Times

"Why go for imitation Tyler Perry when the master is so industrious? Perry's next one should be along in about 10 minutes"
- Kyle Smith, New York Post

"[It] has the saving grace of a lively sense of humor that certainly helps the spiritual medicine go down."
- Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter

"Not Easily Broken is well-acted and involving, though this relationship drama may put some people off with its overt sentimentality and moralizing."
- Claudia Puig, USA Today

A car accident and shifting affections test the bond between a married couple.
