Story


New Year's Eve on the top of a London skyscraper. Martin (Brosnan) is literally on the edge. A once-beloved TV personality, he's now desperate to jump. But he's not alone. Single mother Maureen (Collette), sassy teen Jess (Poots), and musician turned pizza-delivery boy JJ (Paul), have all turned up on the same roof with the same plan.

Instead of jumping, these complete strangers make a pact to stay alive and stay together until Valentine's Day at least.

Both funny and poignant, "A Long Way Down" follows this unlikely group of friends as they try to pull back from the brink.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..it's worse than tacky, trivializing depression for a handful of easy laughs and pop-psychology platitudes..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..the film is one long rictus of denial. It's wholly doomed, but it puts on a brave face..”
by Tim Robey [Daily Telegraph]
“..a genial, lightweight farce, which largely approximates Hornby's distinctively bittersweet tone..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
