Coming & Going is an irreverent romantic comedy that poses the question: How far would you go to capture the heart of the one you love? Lee (Rhys Darby) is a young, skilled OBGYN who lacks confidence when it comes to talking to women outside his successful medical practice. A minor injury temporarily lands him in a wheelchair and it is at that precise time that he meets his dream girl Alex (Sasha Alexander). Convinced she's only paid attention to him because he's in that chair, he stays in it to win her affections well after his injury has healed. Coming & Going is about love and the extreme things people do for it. Written by
Coming & Going Productions
Good rainy day movie or stay at home Friday night flick
Rhys Darby's performance as Lee is very good in its believability of character and comic quirkiness. He convincingly plays a doctor who cannot seem to attract women and his shyness in putting himself out there to meet women seems genuine.
He meets Alex (Sasha Alexander) almost by accident: she nearly runs him over in a parking garage. He's been attracted to her for quite some time but never had the courage to even speak to her. The lovely Sasha Alexander subtly shows her acting chops here. Even the movie goer is convinced she finds him interesting because he's in a wheelchair and he cannot convince himself she's attracted to the person inside of him.
This is the perfect rainy day movie, or a lighthearted romantic comedy perfect for those Friday evenings at home. Don't miss it.
