About the Movie

In this touching comedy based on the acclaimed novel by Nick Hornby, A LONG WAY DOWN centers on four strangers (Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots) who decide to end it all on New Year’s Eve. However, when they meet by chance on a London rooftop, they agree to halt their plans for six weeks. Along the way, they discover that even accidental, dysfunctional families make life worth living.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [An] inane, preposterous and stupefying film ... – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Jul 10, 2014

Rotten: The movie criminally wastes Sam Neill and Rosamund Pike in barely there supporting roles, and the picture has exactly two tones: grim and gooey. They do not coexist harmoniously. – Jason Clark, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 2, 2014

Rotten: Four characters meet while planning to commit suicide and decide to annoy one another instead in this tacky Nick Hornby adaptation. – Peter Debruge, Variety, Feb 11, 2014

Rotten: A horrible misfire of a movie which starts off badly and just keeps getting worse. – Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter, Jul 7, 2014

don't listen to the critics

Wrong as always. This is an incredibly sweet and charming movie that made me laugh and cry. I am going to read the book now. Highly recommended.

loved it

great cast brings nick hornby's book to screen. 5 stars.

better than the book!

i'm a big nick hornsby fan and this was maybe the best film of one of his books yet. all 4 of the characters were great and it was both hysterical and emotional. i want to see it again.
