Latest English Movie Demolition
Director: Jean-Marc Vallée
Stars : Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper
In this movie Investment Banker Davis Mitchell played by Jake Gyllenhaal loses his wife in a tragic accident. His life is in tatters following this tragedy and tries hard to recover and ends up finding some solace in his career of demolishing buildings. He writes a letter to a company about its vending machine which lands up in the hands of a lonely single mom Karen played by Naomi Watts. How he starts to rebuild his demolished life with the help of Karen and her sons forms the rest of the movie.
Hearing the title one would think this is an action movie , but that is far from the truth. This movie is not at all a lighthearted comedy as well – it is almost a real life like story with some thought provoking incidents and some absurdities.
Jake Gyllenhall fits into this slightly weird character who tries to get his life into order after a devastation very well. After his excellent acting in Nightrawler this was expected of him.
