Movie Info

Six people in their early thirties come to terms with their own lives as they acknowledge the passing of a friend in this independent drama. Josh (Michael Knowles) was a successful and seemingly happy art dealer who one day jumped to his death from the window of his Manhattan high-rise apartment. A few days later, a handful of his friends arrive to help clear away his belongings and plan his funeral -- Sara (Susan Misner), his distraught former fiancée; Nick (Randall Batinkoff), a one-time professional athlete whose career is on the skids; Liz (Nicole Fonarow), an emotionally cool yuppie who arrives with her husband, Jim (Chris Henry Coffey); Dylan (Carl T. Evans), a misfit who still hasn't found his place in life; and Joann (Kristen Marie Holly), a socially and environmentally conscious type. No one seems to have any idea of what led Josh to take his own life. While clearing out the apartment, someone finds his journal, and temptation gets the better of them. As they begin to read it, they discover a side of their friend's life that they never knew before. Walking on the Sky was the first film for writer and director Carl T. Evans, who also appears as Dylan.more

Walking on the Sky would barely pass muster as an Off-Off-Broadway offering.

Top Critic

Carl T. Evans' tedious drama Walking on the Sky serves primarily as an acting exercise for its cast and a showcase for its primary location, a scenic Manhattan rooftop.

It's to be hoped that by his next film, his director's gift won't be shortchanged by the writer in him mistaking psychological complexity for acting-school exercises.

Carl T. Evans's semi-autobiographical film is a modern-day Big Chill wannabe without the subtlety, humor, memorable soundtrack, strong performances or convincing dialogue.

I haven't spent an hour and a half with worse company since high school detention.

Six Lower Manhattan thirty somethings ponder the suicide of a mutual friend in Walking on the Sky, a tediously self-absorbed variation on The Big Chill and The Return of the Secaucus 7.
