Film Night: A Long Way Down

Please join me to  watch Pierce Brosnan and Toni Collette star in a funny and touching tale of four desperate strangers who form an unlikely pact. Washed-up former TV personality Martin Sharp (Pierce Brosnan) has decided to end it all on New Year's Eve. But at the top of the London skyscraper from which he plans to hurl himself, Martin finds he's not alone. Three other unhappy people have had the same idea. Maureen (Toni Collette) finds the stress of being a single mother overwhelming. Sassy, impulsive teenager Jess (Imogen Poots) has family problems. And JJ (Aaron Paul) dreamed of being a rock star but now works as a pizza delivery boy. After sharing their stories, the quartet agree to stay alive and stick together - at least until Valentine's Day. Adapted from the novel by 'Fever Pitch' and 'About a Boy' author Nick Hornby, this darkly hilarious comedy spins an unusual and moving story of redemption.

The reviews aren't brilliant, but as I've discovered before, I often disagree with the reviewers!!

The programme begins at 7.50pm, and I suggest meeting at 7.30pm in the foyer. You can get a 10% discount if you book your ticket online, and if you go to a Cineworld cinema regularly, you may wish to get an Unlimited card which costs £15.90 per month.  This event is also advertised with the Crawley and Redhill groups. If you need to contact me on the day, my number is [masked].
