Movie Summary

Director:
Matthew Chapman
Released:
2011
Rating:
Not Available
In this race-against-time thriller, the opposing philosophies of two men embroiled in a complicated love triangle with a beautiful woman (Liv Tyler) escalate into a lethal battle of wills. Ultimately, the believer (Patrick Wilson) forces the non-believer (Charlie Hunnam) onto the ledge of a tall building. He gives him one hour to make a choice between his own life and someone else's, while a policeman (Terrence Howard) tries to convince him to come down from the ledge. Without faith in an afterlife, will he be capable of such a sacrifice? The Ledge is a nuanced character study of love and conviction that will force you to ask how far you'd be willing to go for what you believe in.

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    The Ledge, it should be noted, is not dumb. What undoes it is its mechanical structure: a stale dramatic formula of the sort taught in elementary playwriting classes.
