AND TO FIN­ISH, YET ANOTHER NOVEL ADAP­TA­TION. THIS TIME FROM BRI­TISH AU­THOR NICK HORNBY, THIS LOSE ADAP­TA­TION IS SET ON A LON­DON ROOF, ON NEW YEAR’S EVE AND CON­CERNS A QUAR­TET OF IN­DI­VID­U­ALS CONTEMPLATING SUI­CIDE. Themes of re­gret, angst, de­pres­sion, hope and promis­cu­ity abound. From ac­claimed French direc­tor, Pascal Chaumeil (Heart­breaker) A Long Way Down ac­tu­ally boasts an im­pres­sive cast. Vet­eran per­form­ers Pierce Bros­nan, Rosamund Pike and Toni Col­lette bring some grav­i­tas to the pro­ceed­ings, while Break­ing Bad’s Aaron Paul and im­pres­sive new­comer Imo­gen Poots in­ject some young blood to the pro­ceed­ings. Not the most up­lift­ing of premises to start with, but A Long Way Down won’t nec­es­sar­ily leave you feel­ing that way.
