Here's our first look at THE LEDGE, starring Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler, Charlie Hunnam, and Terrence Howard. According to Sundance's official synopsis of the film, a hotel manager (Hunnam) is about to off himself and a detective (Howard) is called to the scene to convince him otherwise. Howard's detective just went through some hardships of his own, and as Hunnam's manager begins to discuss his past, the detective's decision on helping the manager step off the ledge becomes clouded. I'm assuming that the hotel manager did something to wreck (accidentally and unknowingly, probably) the detective's life.

Check out more images and the official synopsis after the break. THE LEDGE premieres at Sundance on Friday, January 21st, 2011.

Official Synopsis:
Atop a high-rise building, Gavin, a young hotel manager, is about to end his life. Hollis, a detective whose own world has just been turned upside down, is dispatched to the scene. As Hollis tries to persuade Gavin not to jump, each man begins to open up about his past, and we discover that neither of them is convinced that his life is worth living.

In his Sundance debut, director/screenwriter Matthew Chapman has crafted an intense thriller filled with soulful inspiration. While the film examines the complex notion of what drives us as people, strong performances and immersive characters keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The Ledge is a nuanced character study of love, faith, and convictions that will leave you with a question . . . How far are you willing to go for what you believe in?
