Jack Goes Boating Trailer

Overture Films has unveiled the first official trailer on Apple for Philip Seymour Hoffman's directorial debut Jack Goes Boating. This romantic comedy, starring Hoffman and a rather adorable Amy Ryan, debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. It's based on an off-Broadway stage play that Hoffman starred in as well. I didn't see this while I was at Sundance, which I'm now regretting, because it looks surprisingly good, like a sweet little, charming, intimate romantic dramedy, and I seem to have a soft spot for those (e.g. Max Mayer's Adam). If you're a Hoffman fan I suggest watching the trailer, you might also fall for it. Enjoy!

A limo driver's blind date sparks a tale of love, betrayal and friendship focused around two working-class New York City couples. The film co-stars Oscar recognized actors Philip Seymour Hoffman and Amy Ryan.

Jack Goes Boating is directed by Oscar winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who's making his directorial debut after acting for more than 20 years. The screenplay was written by Playwright Bob Glaudini, who also wrote and directed the off-Broadway stage play that this is based on. After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival, Overture Films is now bringing Jack Goes Boating to limited theaters starting September 17th.

"White Winter Hymnal" by Fleet Foxes! Love that song. Trailer looks decent and Phillip Seymour Hoffman chooses few bad roles.

it was okay.

That trailer looked amazing, but then again some people aren't into those kinds of movies. Can't wait for this.

I'm glad to see John Oritz with such a big part. He's a really good character actor. Talent like him always gets parts because they have talent, yet won't be known in the mainstream for a long time, if ever... yet no-talents like Seth Rogen and Johah Hill get parts but everyone knows about them. Have to love the crap that is Hollywood.
