Scarlett-Johansson-and-Joseph-Gordon-Levitt-in-Don-JonJoseph Gordon-Levitt’s highly anticipated directorial debut, Don Jon, is released in the US today, and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the dramatic comedy movie since its Sundance debut.

It might have missed an appearance at Sundance London, but will be heading to the BFI London Film Festival next month – which means a delayed release here in the UK – and after catching a new clip from the film yesterday, IMDb has released an exclusive new featurette, featuring language not surprisingly unsuitable for work.

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.

Scarlett Johansson stars opposite in the female lead, with Julianne Moore completing the leading trio, and Tony Danza, Brie Larson, Glenne Headly, and Rob Brown starring alongside them.

Gordon-Levitt is making his feature debut as both writer and director here, with past collaborator Ram Bergman (Looper, Brick) producing.

Don Jon is released in the US today, September 27th, and will be arriving in the UK a little later on 15th November.
