JACK GOES BOATING
2010, Anchor Bay, 89 min, USA, Dir: Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman makes his directorial debut with this insightful romantic drama. Awkward New York City limo driver Hoffman grows closer to Brooklyn funeral home worker Amy Ryan while the couple who introduced them, John Ortiz and Daphne Rubin-Vega, begin to struggle with their own marriage. Adapted from the acclaimed Off-Broadway play (which starred all of these actors except Ryan), this charmingly low-key indie boasts superb performances and an eye for telling details.
