Grab a drink and let's go see a movie! Bring friends and some good conversation to discuss the film, its characters, the production and more. The Living Room Theater is the location of our weekly Monday meetup. Most movies they play are independent, foreign, artistic with an occasional blockbuster.
We meet Monday evenings to take advantage of their $5 Merry Monday Movie special. They have weekday showings of all their movies in the 7:00 hour, and those are the showings we're shooting for. If you see something coming up there that you'd like to recommend as our Living Room movie of the week, message me or post it on the board by Wednesday the previous week!
See you at the movies!
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.
Director: Joseph Gordon-LevittCountry: USAGenre: ComedyYear: 2013Run Time: 1:30:07imdb Score: 7.5/10 (3,026 votes)Language: EnglishRating: RCast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Scarlett Johansson, Julianne Moore"Don Jon is raunchy
. The dialogue’s frank and much of what we see is explicit enough to make this a film exclusively for grown-ups. Luckily, the emotional places Gordon-Levitt takes his characters are pretty grown-up, too."
Jamie S. Rich - PORTLAND OREGONIAN
"It's a comedy that moves with a sense of purpose, as Gordon-Levitt does in the title role."
Stephanie Zacharek - VILLAGE VOICE
"A truly original character piece, hilariously funny and poignant, with enough humor and heart that more people will be able to relate to the characters than they'll care to admit."
Edward Douglas - COMINGSOON.NET
"Often light on its feet, bolstered by the reliable charms and writing chops of its leading man."
