Movie: Man on a Ledge
Cast: Sam Worthington, Elizabeth Banks, Jamie Bell and Ed Harris
Director: Asger Leth
Nick Cassidy (Sam Worthington) checks in at the Roosevelt Hotel under the false name of Walker, goes to his hotel room at the top floor, and climbs on the ledge, apparently ready to commit suicide.
The crowd below sees him and calls the police. They isolate the area, and try to talk with Nick. However, he says he’ll only speak to negotiator Lydia Mercer (Elizabeth Banks), who is on a leave of absence after failing to convince a depressed policeman not to jump from the Brooklyn Bridge a month earlier. Then starts flashback, as to how he landed on the ledge.
