Director: Jean Marc-Vallee
Stars: Jake Gyllenhaal, Naomi Watts, Chris Cooper
Release Date: April 8th, 2016
Jean Marc-Vallee, who is best known for directing Dallas Buyers Club and Wild, both acclaimed, Oscar-nominated and generic (we kid, sorta), returns with another depressing tale. Jake Gyllenhaal, who was CHEATED by the Oscars for his wacky performance in last year’s Nightcrawler, is back in what looks to be a moving, albeit conventional, drama about a man who must reevaluate his life after his wife dies in a car accident. It’s a familiar conceit, but also Jake.
