Film description

No woman can resist the charms of New Jersey bartender Don Jon (Gordon-Levitt), while Barbara (Scarlett Johansson) is a veritable man magnet. Their typical rom-com encounter would be the first step in a predictable road to the altar followed nauseously by happily ever after. Gordon-Levitt’s film instead exposes how pornography and Hollywood films distort our thinking about relationships and eroticism. Jon confuses sex with masturbating in front of his computer and Barbara mistakes fiction for reality. Gordon-Levitt stars and debuts with the (anti) romantic comedy as a director and unusually talented writer in a script jam-packed with amusing lines and nuanced characters. The film’s second half gets even better with the bull’s-eye casting of Julianne Moore as Esther.
