Out This Weekend: ‘Demolition’
Who doesn’t love a heartfelt, uplifting movie with a fella like Jake Gyllenhaal at its center?
This weekend, the new drama Demolition arrives in theaters and we’ve got everything you need to know…
Who’s in it?
What’s it about?
Gyllenhaal plays Davis, an investment banker coming to terms with the sudden loss of his wife. He begins sending letters to a vending machine company to complain about a faulty machine, ultimately confessing his thoughts. A customer service rep named Karen (Watts), along with her son Chris (Lewis), form a bond with the grieving husband.
Davis decides to both figuratively and literally disassemble his marriage in order to move forward.
Why should I care?
If watching Mr. Gyllenhaal act isn’t your thing, the film was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, the guy behind films like Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, so you’ll probably laugh, and you might even cry.
