The setting of the incident was all the more a reminder as it was aboard a train and I believe the man may have been accompanied by a significant other.
I never actually saw the film (so I could have some of the description wrong) but the resemblance had me interested.
You know what the awesome thing about this movie? Scott Bakula is the father of Jake Gyllenhaal's character. Sadly you only hear his voice I didn't know Quantum Leap when I first watched the movie and I thought that was pretty cool idea. Then I learnt QL had already done that
