Jack Goes Boating is a tale of love, betrayal, friendship, and grace set against the backdrop of working-class New York City life. The film stars John Ortiz (Pride and Glory), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Broadway’s Rent), Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote); with Hoffman making his feature directorial debut. Bob Glaudini adapted his acclaimed Off-Broadway play for the screen.
Jack Goes Boating is the story of four New Yorkers. 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), have been together a long time and are confronting unresolved issues in their marriage.
