A Long Way Down

(2014)

Life is looking up.

Four desperate strangers (Pierce Broson, Imogen Poots, Aaron Paul and Toni Collette) find themselves on the roof of a building in London on New Year's Eve, each with the intention of jumping off. Their plans are ruined by each other's presence, so they make a pact not to commit suicide until Valentine's Day. Based on the novel by Nick Hornby.... More

Our four lost souls - a disgraced TV presenter (Brosnan), a foul-mouthed politician's daughter (Poots), an isolated single mother (Collette) and a pizza delivery man whose dreams of rock stardom lie in ruins (Paul) - make the agreement and afford themselves a six week reprieve from suicide. In the process they form an unconventional family, become media sensations as the 'Topper House Four', and search desperately for reasons to keep on living.Hide
