AHA Promotes New Film, The Ledge

Movie lovers: don’t miss a new major motion picture set to release this summer! Reason Cinema and the American Humanist Association is proud to promote The Ledge, a gripping, complex new thriller from IFC Films, focuses on the battle of philosophies between a fundamentalist Christian and a nonbeliever that escalates into a lethal battle of wills.

After embarking on a passionate affair with the wife (Liv Tyler, Lord of the Rings) of his evangelical Christian neighbor (Patrick Wilson, Little Children), Gavin (Charlie Hunnam, Sons of Anarchy) soon finds himself in a philosophical conflict that will have life or death consequences. The film also stars Academy Award nominee Terrence Howard (Hustle and Flow).

Writer and director Matthew Chapman is the great-great-grandson of Charles Darwin and was a featured speaker at the 2008 American Humanist Association Conference in Washington DC. Chapman has written and directed several independent and mainstream films.

Below, watch a clip from the film featuring an impassioned debate between characters on either side of the divide between evangelical Christian belief and atheistic reason.

The Ledge will appear in theaters July 8. Visit www.reasoncinema.com or www.ledgemovie.com to learn more about the film.
