This film is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend people to see it! It's a shame how there is a lack of British films that come out which have pure substance.

The story here, I'm sure you know it. Four people go to a roof, not together by themselves, to end their lives. After all bumping into each other their one thing leads to another, which then leads to a pact, to not kill themselves until Valentines Day.
It's funny, there are some touching moments and it never dragged. There are four sections to the film, with each character being focused on, something I liked. Imogen Poots was fantastic and really should be getting more praise. Pierce Brosnan is great as always, as is Aaron Paul (Jesse, Yo!) and Toni Collette.

If you want to watch a fun, touching and uplifting British film, see this film.

*Rated 15 for strong language, suicide theme and mild sensuality and violence**

Watched this in the Cinemas in the UK and very much enjoyed it. The storyline was strong and the cast were surprisingly good especially Aaron Paul and Imogen Poots (who I've never heard of before this film). Obviously I wouldn't know what every single person's taste in films but I normally like indie films, thrillers and an occasional chick flick but I very much enjoyed the film. I walked out the cinema feeling good about myself and happy about the final outcome of the film therefore I recommend this despite some critics' views.

I have no idea why critics dismissed "A Long Way Down", I thought it was a well-made, well-acted and generally good film, a kind-hearted comedy. I am sure you all know what this film is about: on New Year's Eve, four [very different] people decide to kill themselves. And then they decide not to. An unlikely friendship buds and then blossoms.

If you are in the right type of mood, don't expect a lot of laughs and are looking for a thoughtful gentle comedy drama - perhaps give it a chance. Three and a half stars.
