jack goes boating

 

Jack, a limo driver obsessed with reggae, and Connie, employed in a funeral home, are two single people who on their own might continue to recede into the background of New York city, before of meeting each other and find the courage to pursue their budding relationship. And while their friends Clyde and Lucy are confronting the unresolved issues in their marriage in crisis, Connie inspires Jack to learn to cook, pursue a new career and take swimming lessons, so he can give Connie the romantic boat ride she dreams of.

 

“Jack is a guy who’s probably had a few relationships in his life, but nothing really substantial. Fear has dictated his comings and goings during the first half of his life. He’s not stunted or anything; it’s all fear. He actually is kind of a cool guy. When you’re working on a play, you try to explore the things that might only be implied and fill in the blanks. In the movie, we got to explore a lot of different environments and interactions that couldn’t be seen in the play.”
