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
This is a small movie (read Independent) that delivers big time. This well written, well directed, well acted film shows that if you open your heart, love is there waiting to come in and fill it up.
Rhys Darby successfully blends humor with just enough klutz to make everyone fall in love with him.
Of course, the highlight of the film for me, is Sasha Alexander. This talented actress is as comfortable with humor as she is with Drama or action. Her portrayal of Alex is spot on. She is quirky, sexy and full of surprises.
You may just find yourself adding a new word to your vocabulary, I know I did.
