Jake Gyllenhaal’s wife dies and he gets screwed out of peanut M&Ms at a vending machine…that’s pretty much all I got from this trailer. Let’s let the YouTube description fill in the gaps:
“A successful investment banker, Davis (Jake Gyllenhaal), struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Despite pressure from his father-in-law (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 strangers form an unlikely connection. With the help of Karen and her son (Judah Lewis), Davis starts to rebuild, beginning with the demolition of the life he once knew.”
I’m sorry but I’m going to have to mark this one down as boring even though it’s probably going to be really good.
