All coma stories should be a positive as this
14 January 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Young Mandy Brown is out on a double date with her boyfriend/fiancé Elias Cecil and her friend Noelle Perris and a real jerk of a kid played by Owen Williams. Williams probably got the date because he had the car. But he's the kind you don't give a car to. Showing off and generally behaving like an idiot behind the wheel he gets involved in a crash. He walks away, but the rest suffer physical injury. Lucky no one was killed but Ms. Brown spends from 1989 to 2008 in a coma. But she wakes up like she just took a long winter's nap in hibernation.

It certainly is a miracle because those in a long coma usually don't come out of it, re Karen Ann Quinlan and if they do it's not with all their faculties intact. Brown would like to pick up where she left off providing she can catch up on all that has happened. Locally among her set all that happened isn't good and she has to learn to adjust and forgive within Christian parameters because this is in fact a Christian movie.

I liked the story and the performance of the four accident survivors were good. All of them suffered injuries, not all those injuries were physical. Williams walked away completely, yet guilt has paralyzed his psyche and he's a ne'er do well journalist. Cecil lost a promising football career. Perris is the worst of all, no physical injuries, but she's bitter and got into playing mind games.

Interesting that I see this film now when there is a move to overhaul our medical coverage system and not for the better by the new administration about to take place. Unanswered in this film is the level of care given Brown and how it was paid for. I suspect that was not something the filmmakers wanted to get into.

Nevertheless Leaving Limbo is a worthwhile film for the questions it says it answers and the ones like mine it inspires.
