Jack Goes Boating

     Movies can make you think
 Sometimes a film can offer a little challenge.  Much of the underlying theme of this blog is the quest for personal growth.  In this film there are two men, in nearly equal circumstances-in fact, they are friends because they have the same job and know each other from the workplace.  Both men, during the course of the film, are seen to be trying to improve themselves.  One does and one doesn't.  If you have the opportunity to see this film, it might be an interesting question to ponder, why:  What is the difference between the two?  Why does one actually embark on a path of self-development and make some head-way and the other, who also tries, seems stuck?    The film title is Jack Goes Boating and it is directed by, and stars, Philip Seymour Hoffman.
