Here’s the trailer for Jack Goes Boating, which is based on a Bob Glaudini off-Broadway play that Philip Seymour Hoffman also starred in. He’s directing here, and more importantly, it also stars Amy Ryan, who is the ninth wonder. It’s a whimisiquirkilicious romantic comedy, but it looks light on the whimsy, but maybe heavy on the quirk. I don’t know what the hell is going on with Hoffman’s hair in this, but it otherwise looks like the kind of flick I’d go a little soft in the head for.
The plot is describes as such: “A limo driver’s blind date sparks a tale of love, betrayal, friendship, and grace centered around a working-class New York City couple.”
