Jake Gyllenhaal is following up his superb performance in Southpaw by starring in the Fox Searchlight comedy-drama, Demolition.
Here’s the scoop on the film:
A successful investment banker, Davis, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law (Chris 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 (Naomi Watts) and, amidst emotional and financial burdens of her own, the two strangers form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.
Chris Cooper, Naomi Watts, and Judah Lewis also star in the film.
