An insight into Gordon-Levitt's internet history

He’s survived everything from child stardom to Robin’s revival, so Joseph Gordon-Levitt does what any risk-taker should: bites off more than most could chew.

Not content with stylishly mounting his writing/directing debut, he also tackles the off-putting role of a porn addict and makes him likeable without straining to charm. He even ‘cheats’ on ScarJo at his laptop, the fool!

Jon’s route to redemption wobbles, but twists involving some weed and Julianne Moore’s well-judged older woman counter any feelgood clichés, resulting in a sex-com that’s pervy, poignant and probing.

Good news: the Boy Wonder’s blunder years can wait.
