More Info IMDb

Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Jon Martello in his own directorial debut. Jon is a handsome, strong, clean-shaven old-fashioned boy who only cares about a few things in life: his body, his pad, his ride, his family, his church, his boys, his girls and his porn. Known as Don Jon to his buddies because he pulls a different girl every weekend, Jon finds nothing more satisfying than his time at home alone with his porn. Then he meets his 10. Scarlett Johansson plays Barbara Sugarman, the sweet and beautiful old-fashioned girl who changes everything. Except the porn. Jon still loves his porn but Barbara is more of the good old-fashioned Hollywood romance type. Both with their own very different and very unrealistic media-born expectations of what love and sex should be Jon and Barbara struggle to make sense of modern intimacy.

"Gutsy, sexy, and hilarious" --Chase Whale, TWITCHFILM

"A funny, sly directorial debut" --William Goss, FILM.COM

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

A Little Controversy to Start the Week

Natty in suit and tie and fresh from an introduction (to a group of high-schoolers, natch) of his new film I Am David, Feig impresses with an open intelligence, an engaging charisma, and what appears to be a genuine appreciation for where he is in his career and life.
