'Don Jon': Another Hollywood Movie on Porn Obsession
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – "Don Jon," a new comedy that tells the tale of an obsessed online adult surfer, opens at theaters nationwide this weekend.
In the R-rated comedy "Don Jon," Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a New Jersey ladies’ man whose ability to maintain normal relationships with women is stunted by his obsession with online porn.
Gordon-Levitt, who wrote and directed "Don Jon," says he was interested in exploring how the media shapes our perceptions and expectations.
“Pornography is a huge, huge part of our media culture,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “Whether it’s rated X or approved by the FCC to sell Doritos, the message is the same.”
