Hey guys, Jana here,
Director Jean-Marc Vallée (‘Dallas Buyers Club‘) followed up his Oscar nominated DBC with ‘Wild‘ starring Reese Witherspoon and has moved onto ‘Demolition‘ featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Heather Lind, Chris Cooper and Polly Draper. It’s headed to the big screen April 8, 2016.
Davis (Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (Cooper) to pull it together, Davis continues to unravel. What starts as a complaint letter to a vending machine company turns into a series of letters revealing startling personal admissions. Davis’ letters catch the attention of customer service rep Karen (Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
