He’s just been announced as the director and star of the upcoming Sandman graphic novel adaptation, but Joseph Gordon-Levitt is no stranger to being in front of AND behind the camera. This year saw the release of the talented multihyphenate’s screenwriting-directing debut, Don Jon, a film that looks at the ridiculousness of love, sex, dating, and the media. Gordon-Levitt’s impressive first feature is on a number of critics’ top tens and has been nominated for Best Screenplay at the Independent Spirit Awards.
The film follows Jon (Gordon-Levitt), an image-conscious porn-watcher from New Jersey who meets a girl (Scarlett Johansson) who’s seen way too many Hollywood romantic comedies. Each of them has a skewed idea of what a relationship would be like, but it’ll take finding common ground for them to truly find intimacy and happiness. The cast also includes Julianne Moore, Tony Danza, Glenne Headley, and Brie Larson.
