Demolition - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), a successful investment banker, struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father in law Phil (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 form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son Chris (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.

MOVIE REVIEW

If your wife dies in a tragic car accident and you don’t care, are you an asshole? Or do you care and are just so emotionally disconnected that you simply appear to be one? Jake Gyllenhaal must deal with such questions in the oddly powerful Demolition, an unpredictable and entertaining drama from the director of Dallas Buyers Club.
