Two-time Golden Globe nominee Joseph Gordon-Levitt makes his feature film directorial debut in the critically acclaimed comedy-drama film Don Jon, which he also wrote and stars as the titular character. Alongside him are Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore, with Rob Brown, Glenne Headly, Brie Larson and Tony Danza in supporting roles.
Jon Martello, Jr. is a handsome, old-fashioned guy who has a short list of things he cares about: “"my body, my pad, my ride, my family, my church, my boys, my girls, my porn.” He is nicknamed “Don Jon” for his modern day Don Juan abilities to charm beautiful women to bed at will. Despite the many flings Don has, he is unable to forge any meaningful relationships with the opposite sex due to the incomparable bliss he finds alone when he watches porn.
When Jon meets Barbara Sugarman, a gorgeous, good old-fashioned girl who was raised on romantic movies, there is a mutual attraction that culminates into a traditional long-term courtship. While Jon struggles to free himself from his addiction to virtual debauchery, she hopes to mold him into her ideal Prince Charming. As the two try to find true intimacy amidst the false fantasies, a middle-aged woman Esther reaches out to Jon to show him the beauty of making love.
