LONG WAY DOWN, A | AndersonVision
“A Long Way Down" suffers from what messes up most of the adaptations of Nick Hornby novels. This time, it's a tale about four people who try to commit suicide, but end up bonding together to form a family. Their shared story sets off a media circus and Brosnan's character uses it as an excuse to get his perfect media position back. As someone who read the original novel, I was taken aback by the push to force laughs and build romance. Where did all of the nuance go?
