Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots play four suicidal people who meet on top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve in the black comedy A Long Way Down, adapted from Nick Hornby’s novel of the same name.
After the chance encounter, the four – a disgraced chat show host, a single mother, a failed musician, and a troubled teenager respectively – foil each other’s attempts to commit suicide and form a surrogate family after making a pact not to kill themselves until Valentine’s Day.
Pascal Chaumeil directs with an adapted screenplay by Jack Thorne. Check out the first trailer below:
Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill and Tuppence Middleton also star in the film, which will have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival next month. A Long Way Down is set for a March 21 release in the U.K., with a U.S. release date yet to be set.
