Released:
2014
Rating:
R
Watch Now Before It's In Theaters. In this touching comedy, a disgraced TV presenter (Pierce Brosnan), a foul-mouthed teen (Imogen Poots), an isolated single mother (Toni Collette) and an aging pizza delivery boy (Aaron Paul) decide to end it all on New Year's Eve. When this disillusioned group of strangers unintentionally meet at Topper's Tower, a trendy jumper hotspot, they agree to call off their plans for six weeks. Their written pact inadvertently binds them together and sweeps the public up --transforming them into unwitting media sensations -- as they discover that even accidental families make life worth living. Based on the bestselling novel by Nick Hornby.
