This comes as a bit of a surprise. Until now there was little in the way of news or publicity surrounding the new Pierce Brosnan film A Long Way Down. Then last week the trailer popped up on-line and it received its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival.
The film is based on the novel of the same name by the British author Nick Hornby. New year’s eve finds four very different characters on the same roof of a high-rise block intent on ending their lives. Instead of doing so they all find common purpose to go on. They become a sort of support arrangement for each other. As their story becomes public their history and backgrounds threaten to pull them apart.
The trailer gives a flavour of the tone and style of the film without hopefully giving too much of the story away. Alongside Brosnan the movie features star turns from Imogen Poots, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette and Aaron Paul. The film is released in the UK on the 21st of March.
