Limbo Trailer Previews Syrian Refugee Comedy Set in Scotland

Limbo, by another name, could almost be “quarantine” (the sort that we have all been living through for the last year). While many don’t want to dwell on that, Limbo is also the name of what looks to be a delightful film from Ben Sharrock that’s coming to theaters later this month.

A Syrian refugee musician is at the center of the story that follows his journey in seeking asylum in a land so foreign to him, Scotland. From the trailer, there’s an up and off beat charm, the sort you might think of when thinking about indie comedies of yesteryear (i.e. before dramedy was the focus of most of the subgenre).

Go see for yourself here, then look for Limbo in theaters (no word on VOD or streaming yet) on Apr. 30th.
