Jack Goes Boating Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Jack (Academy Award winner Philip Seymour Hoffman, making his directorial debut) and Connie (Amy Ryan) are two single people who on their own might continue to recede into the anonymous background of New York City, but in each other begin to find the courage and desire to pursue a budding relationship. As Jack and Connie cautiously circle commitment, the couple that introduced them, Clyde (John Ortiz) and Lucy (Daphne Rubin-Vega), confront their own unresolved issues, and each couple comes face to face with the inevitable path of their relationship.

Based on the acclaimed Off-Broadway play of the same name, this unconventional romantic comedy is a tale of love, betrayal, friendship and grace.

Review: Jack Goes Boating is the directoral debut of actor Phillip Seymour Hoffman.  He also stars as Jack, an glib, ackward and drab character in New York.  When he meets Connie she begins to open up the possibilities of life to him and they eventually begin a love affair.  Of course, in the nature of all good romantic films, there is strife that they must overcome.  The story here isn't that original or interesting, but the development of the characters is.  Hoffman turns in a typically interesting performance and pulls off a nice balance with his character.  The film ends up being rather charming and whitty, thanks to some great characters and fun dialogue.  Definately a must for those that enjoy the ackward.

The special features on this blu-ray include: Jack’s New York , From the Stage to the Big Screen, Deleted Scenes, Theatrical Trailer and Also on Blu-ray.

Interest Range: Romantic Comedy, Drama
