Fans of Joseph Gordon-Levitt are sure to love his new movie Don Jon, which as you may have heard, he not only stars in but also directed. I’m actually looking forward to seeing what Gordon-Levitt does next as a directing project.
The movie also stars Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore, and Tony Danza. It will hit theaters on September 27th, 2013.
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old-fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to “pull” a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn’t compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old-fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she’s determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old-fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
