Synopsis by Daniel Gelb
Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal) has a comfortable life as a Wall Street investment banker, but it's brought to an abrupt halt when his wife is killed in a car accident. As he struggles to move on from this tragedy, he reflects on the stagnant marriage he had with his late spouse. He also becomes obsessed with dismantling the machines surrounding him as a coping mechanism, and begins a relationship with a customer-service representative for a vending-machine company (Naomi Watts) after sending them multiple complaint letters. Director Jean-Marc Vallée directed this black dramedy, which made its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
