Skeptical Highlights:

– Movie: The Ledge

In the new film The Ledge, Charlie Hunnam plays an atheist named Gavin who is about to kill himself because of a dispute with a Christian villain named Joe (played by Patrick Wilson).

Director Matthew Chapman says “Although books have put atheists into the intellectual mainstream, The Ledge is the first Hollywood drama to target the broader movie-going public with an openly atheist hero in a production big enough to attract A-list stars. This is unprecedented.”
