Chlotrudis Hall-of-Famer returns with JACK GOES BOATING

Join Chlotrudis members on Friday, September 24 for the 7:20 pm screening of Philip Seymour Hoffman's directorial debut, JACK GOES BOATING.  We'll be catching the screening at the Kendall Square Cinema in Cambridge.  Chlotrudis was an early fan of Hoffman, and we're very excited to see his first turn behind the camera.

Jack Goes Boating


Jack (Philip Seymour Hoffman, in his directorial debut) 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 (John Ortiz, American Gangster) and Clyde's wife Lucy (Daphne Rubin-Vega, Broadway's Rent). The couple set Jack up with Connie (Amy Ryan, Gone Baby Gone), 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
