City Island

Posted on July 16, 2010


City Island – (art house) This is a darn good movie. Andy Garcia (Vince Rizzo) is a corrections officer with a secret desire to be an actor. He also has a secret son he first meets while at work aka prison. Julianne Margulies, with a slight overbite or slightly over-botoxed lips, is the somewhat shrewish Bronx wife with a few secrets of her own. Other secrets are held by Emily Mortimer, ever so Audrey-Hepburn-Breakfast-at-Tiffanyish, the college daughter earning money as a pole dancer and the high school son who is into fat chicks. Hot ex-con son is the only one who believes in telling the truth. It all comes together in a very funny way. Nice soundtrack, too.
