A Long Way Down trailer: the suicide comedy

If anyone can pull this off, as a writer, it’s Nick Hornby. Doesn’t mean the movie based on his novel works, of course, but, as ever, I live in hope.


UK release date: Mar 21 2014

    Hornby’s pieces dance sooooo close to that twee/sappy/omfg-make-it-stop-cloying edge…

    I haven’t read any of his books, but I’ve loved the movies based on them.

    Previous adaptations of Hornby novels have deviated from the originals, but in ways that entirely worked. This will be the first based-on-a-Hornby-novel movie where I’ve read the book first, and although I can see the deviations already, I hope they work too.

    based on real stories….

    I’m very much not a fan of Hornby since I made the mistake of reading High Fidelity, but the cast is good, and maybe by now he can actually write women as human beings.

    I know I can just go to the IMDB, but who is Imogen Poots, and where have I seen her before?

    Tammy in 28 Weeks Later was her breakout role. Since then: Cracks, Centurion, Fright Night, A Late Quartet, many others. I suspect that this is her obligatory big garbage film so that she can be cast in big good films.

    She’s in Need for Speed, which MaryAnn just reviewed. I think she plays The Girl.
