A true original. Hilarious and profound in equal measure. This is a simple story, well told. A writer myself, I know how hard this is to attain. The listed budget is a shocker yet, despite the lack of funds, the filmmakers achieved something truly heartfelt and genuine. Why, oh why doesn't the British Film Industry fund these true artists instead of throwing money down the drain on the usual Brit-flick fare? Too often I see talentless schlock with flashy editing used to cover over the drivel of a script and the tragically wooden actors. Not so with Coma Girl! My only criticism is the length: I wanted more. This is a film both my wife and I and also my two kids, 13yrs & 18yrs, love. We have watched it a number of times together. This film is evidence of a fresh new talent on the horizon. Could she be the female Woody Allen? It's about time she came along.
