Dir. Philip Seymour Hoffman. 2010, 89 mins. 35mm. With Philip Seymour Hoffman, Amy Ryan, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega. For his impressive directorial debut, Hoffman adapted this lovely, affecting play produced by the off-Broadway Labyrinth Theater Company (where he served as Artistic Director). In the story of a quartet of working-class New Yorkers, Hoffman is a loner limo driver who enters a tentative romance. “There’s a dreamy aspect to the film,” said Hoffman. “It’s really emotional; it’s not analytical. These people are being pulled by their emotional life. Whether it’s a psychic pain or a true desire and hope for something else, they’re all looking to be relieved of whatever burden they’ve been carrying…that’s the journey we take with them.”
