I make fun of people who swoon over celebrities, but the truth is, I felt shamefully excited when Joseph Gordon-Levitt sat right in front of me for the screening of this film at Sundance. I can judge none.
Don Jon, called Don Jon’s Addiction when I saw it at the festival (a better title, in my opinion), is a very nice film. It’s a solidly-made first feature for Levitt, who wrote and directed in addition to starring in it. I’m sure you’ll all have fun with it.
The movie is summarized thusly:
Jon Martello (Gordon-Levitt) is a modern day Don Juan who objectifies everything in his life, especially women. His friends call him Don Jon because of his ability to pull “10s” every weekend without fail. But his addiction to porn has made him dissatisfied with life and he sets out on a journey to find a more gratifying sex life. However, he ends up seeing the bigger picture and learning more about life and love through two different women.
Don Jon comes out October 18th. Watch the trailer below:
