Jack Goes Boating

Jack Goes Boating

Philip Seymour Hoffman directs and stars in this downbeat romantic dramedy about two working-class New York couples. Hoffman is a lonely limo driver set up on a date with a funeral home worker (Amy Ryan) by his best friends. As usual for these slice-of-life indie character dramas, everybody is unhappy, uncomfortable and awkward around one another. But the writing is sensitive and the acting is solid.
