If a trailer gets you to want to know more about the film, then it's done it's job. That's how I feel after watching the trailer for DEMOLITION starring Jake Gyllenhaal. I don't really understand why Gyllenhaal is tearing apart his house shortly after his wife dies, or why he's just now attempting to figure out his love for her. But it's from director Jean-Marc Vallée, which instantly makes me intrigued as he's become a master at capturing a character at the end of his or her rope--and seeing them through the other side.
More on the film below:
Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (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 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.
