Philip Seymour Hoffman (Boogie Nights, The Big Lebowski, Magnolia, Twsiter) interview at JACK GOES BOATING Premiere at Landmark Theatre in Los Angeles,Ca USA September 13, 2010 - Red carpet interview by Marianna Hewitt.
Jack (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and Connie (Amy Ryan) are two single people who on their own might continue to recede into the anonymous background of the city, but in each other begin to find the courage and desire to pursue their budding relationship. In contrast, the couple that introduced them, Clyde (John Ortiz) and Lucy (Daphne Rubin-Vega), are confronting unresolved issues in their marriage.Jack is a limo driver with vague dreams of landing a job with the MTA and an obsession with reggae that has prompted him to begin a half-hearted attempt at growing dreadlocks. He spends most of his time hanging out with his best friend and fellow driver Clyde and Clyde's wife Lucy.
The couple set Jack up with Connie, Lucy's co-worker at a Brooklyn funeral home. Being with Connie inspires Jack to learn to cook, pursue a new career and take swimming lessons from Clyde so he can give Connie the romantic boat ride she dreams of. But as Jack and Connie cautiously circle commitment, Clyde and Lucy's marriage begins to disintegrate. From there, we watch as each couple comes face to face with the inevitable path of their relationship.The stage version of Jack Goes Boating was originally produced by LAByrinth Theater Company in New York City, where Hoffman and Ortiz were co-artistic directors for over ten years.Jack Goes Boating will be released in NY and LA on Friday, September 17, 2010 http://www.jackgoesboatingmovie.com/
