Don Jon Synopsis
Jon Martello (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is a strong, handsome, good old fashioned guy. His buddies call him Don Jon due to his ability to "pull" a different woman every weekend, but even the finest fling doesn't compare to the bliss he finds alone in front of the computer watching pornography. Barbara Sugarman (Scarlett Johansson) is a bright, beautiful, good old fashioned girl. Raised on romantic Hollywood movies, she's determined to find her Prince Charming and ride off into the sunset. Wrestling with good old fashioned expectations of the opposite sex, Jon and Barbara struggle against a media culture full of false fantasies to try and find true intimacy in this unexpected comedy written and directed by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 may not match the jangly comic insanity of the original film released in 2009, but it had an ace in the hole no matter what: families with nothing else to see at the movies.

Don Jon is really only about a few things. His body. His pad. His ride. His family. His church. Hi boys. His girls. And, of course, his porn. It's that last part that really starts causing him trouble in Don Jon, the directorial debut of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who also transforms himself as the titular charter, a classic Jersey bro who has to learn the hard way that immersing yourself in porn is no actual way to live your life

Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Don Jon Eyeing Awards Run With October Release Date? Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Don Jon Eyeing Awards Run With October Release Date?
The October release date leads me to believe Relativity might be prepping for an awards run, if not on the Oscar circuit (where the porn angle could make for a difficult sell) then at least on the film-fest track and, possibly, the Independent Spirit Awards campaign. Johansson, Danza, Moore and Gordon-Levitt all deliver awards-worthy performance, and the director easily could attract heat if the movie catches on.

The story of Don Jon will be its use of pornography to tell of Jon’s predicament, and there are multiple discussions we can have regarding imagery in the media perverting the communal mind when it comes to sex, or Jon’s mistaken belief that simply attending weekly confession will return him to the straight-and-narrow path toward righteousness and healing.
