DEMOLITION, the latest offering from acclaimed director Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club, Wild) releases in UK cinemas on April 29th and today, Fox Searchlight Pictures have made available a brand new featurette – ‘Defining The Character‘.
In this piece, we learn more about Jake Gyllenhaal’s character Davis, a man who has lived by the rules and is shaken when life takes a tragic turn.
DEMOLITION stars Academy Award nominees Jake Gyllenhaal and Naomi Watts, Academy Award winner Chris Cooper and introduces us to newcomer Judah Lewis.
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.
