Jack Goes Boating 1.0 stars

Jack Goes Boating movie poster

Comedy of awkwardness among emotional, possibly mental, cripples. (“I’m not ready yet for penis penetration.”) Undeniably painful, but not generally in a good way. Philip Seymour Hoffman preserves his stage role for eternity (his nervous throat-clearing, his woolen knit cap, his scraggly blond dreadlocks), important enough to him that he directed it himself. Adapted to the screen by Bob Glaudini from his own play. With Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, and Daphne Rubin-Vega. 2010.
