Storyline

A thriller in which a battle of philosophies between a fundamentalist Christian and an atheist escalates into a lethal battle of wills. Ultimately, as a test of faith, or lack of it, the believer forces the non-believer onto the ledge of a tall building. He then has one hour to make a choice between his own life and someone else's. Without faith in an afterlife, will he be capable of such a sacrifice? Written by Foresight

Goofs

At 1:12:27 into the movie, as the camera pans to Gavin on the ledge talking to Hollis, the sun is high casting only a partial shadow ton the gray building in the background. The camera then switches to just Hollis looking out of the window, and when it goes back to show Gavin again, the shadow on the gray building behind him covers it almost completely. But the next two times we see Gavin at the same spot the shadow moves back and forth, revealing that the scenes were shot earlier but cut in for the sake of the narrative. See more »

But this couple down at the precinct, they've been at me for this for a year now, and I've known them for 15 years, I mean, John and Jane Connelly, they're real good people, but you know, they can't have kids, so he goes, you know, "If I had a child I'd want to be like Hollis", aw shoot, I don't even know why...

A grand film
8 July 2011 | by (Manhattan, KS) – See all my reviews

First off I am an atheist, so I was anxiously awaiting this. I have actually been experiencing old friends and family coming to me asking what happened to make me lose my faith. Nothing I say over and over then launch in to explaining everything again. This movie was phenomenal and now I can say "hey you know what, go watch the ledge"

I thought all the characters seemed believable, both in their lines and beliefs. The storytelling bounces around a bit which I love, it allows you to make assumptions and try to figure everything out before its revealed.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching The Ledge, and I plan on buying it on DVD so I can lend it to people. I can only hope that this does alright and more atheist protagonists are created.
