Storyline

Forever Love is a poignant new television movie about a woman who awakens from a 20-year-long coma and begins her life all over again. In the drama, suggested by a true story, Lizzie and Alex Brooks are a fairy tale young couple, wildly in love and the parents of a little girl, Emma. Then, without warning, 24-year-old Lizzie suffers a stoke. At the hospital, doctors tell Alex that his young wife has slipped into a deep coma and there is nothing to do but wait to see if she comes out of it. Alex, determined to keep his vow to love Lizzie in sickness and in health, decides to bring her home and take care of her. Alex is helped and consoled by Gail, Lizzie's best friend. Gail not only offers a loving friendship to Alex, she fills in for Lizzie with young Emma as well. When Gail's husband is killed in a car crash, Alex, Gail and Emma form a de facto family unit of their own until, 20 years after her stroke, Lizzie wakes up. Miraculously, Lizzie is pronounced perfectly healthy and begins ... Written by Anonymous

Reba can do it all.
14 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Forever Love proves Reba's ability to capture an audience not only through her music, but through her acting. Reba's emotional performance goes to show that she can do anything she takes on and draw people to it. Forever Love tackles issues that one may not realize could happen. This emotional movie bring home values that touch the heart and enable one to express empathy. Even if some think the movie's plot is not easy to believe, it would hold anyone's attention who is human, let alone a romantic. Forever Love also has an amazing supporting cast who show their talents as well. It is easy for one to be drawn into the story line and feel connected to each character. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has a heart and who is a fan of Reba. Just let yourself get lost in the characters and the meaning of Forever Love.
