“A successful investment banker, Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law (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 strangers form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.”
Looks like we have a quite interesting story here! And I love Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance, altough at times it feels like he’s serving us the ghost of Louis Bloom, the character he played in Nightcrawler.
The release date of Demolition is set to April 8, 2016.
