Here's the first movie trailer for the indie film The Ledge which stars Liv Tyler, Patrick Wilson Terrence Howard, Charlie Hunnam and Christopher Gorham. The film was shown during The Sundance Film Festival, but I didn't get a chance to see it. Ben P. did though, and regardless of all the negative buzz surrounding the movie up at the festival he actually liked it. Here's a excerpt from his review.
The Ledge was my most anticipated film of the entire festival. I've heard a lot of negative buzz around this movie already (with some claiming its the worst Sundance movie they've seen in years), but I can't see how this is possible. For me, the movie mostly worked as a study of actions and consequences and a warning about the perils of passion...
...It's smartly written and deals with much larger issues than the standard thrillers we get in theaters these days. Religion plays a huge part in the movie (also surprising), and philosophical arguments between characters with different belief systems sometimes seem like Chapman working out his own issues than organic things these characters would say. Other than that, I really don't have much to complain about with this movie.

Gavin, a young college professor, has stepped out onto the ledge of a high-rise building, determined to jump. However, a detective, who has recently suffered his own tragedy, is sent to talk Gavin down. And as the detective and the professor discuss the circumstances that have brought them to the brink of suicide, they'll need to convince each other that life is worth living.
To be honest, after watching the trailer I don't really have any interest in watching the movie. Check it out below, and let us know what you think!
