Phillip Seymor Hoffman is such a great actor. He is able to draw knowing laughter from from a line or a moment that any other good actor might miss. Playing the loser with a heart of gold, Hoffman subtly endears himself to the audience over the course of this gentle wistful romantic play. Though it takes a while to really get going, by Act 2 I was genuinely involved in this story about a couple with a dysfunctional relationship playing matchmakers for their shy co-workers. With its short succinct scenes, location hopping and general likability look for this to pop up on the indie film circuit in a couple of years. PSH will star with hmmm..... Jane Adams, Rosie Perez, and Bobby Cannavale.
