Movie synopsis
A dysfunctional family living on a picturesque island in the Bronx spares no expense in avoiding the truth about their messed-up lives in writer/director Raymond de Felitta's dark family comedy. The family patriarch, Vince (Andy Garcia) is a prison guard who is secretly plotting a new career as an actor. Meanwhile, as Vince takes acting lessons on the down low, his daughter moonlights as a stripper and his younger namesake harbors a secret fetish that involves the family's 300-pound neighbor. Under normal circumstances Vincent's wife, Joyce (Julianna Margulies), would be the family rock, but lately she's been preoccupied with uncovering the identity of the hired help, a secret that only her husband knows.

Editorial reviews

"A professionally executed farce of the yelling-family variety, CITY ISLAND revolves around a blue-collar clan with more secrets than filters."
New York Times - Jeannette Catsoulis (03/19/2010)

"Andy Garcia reminds you of what a cunning, likable actor he can be."
Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman (04/02/2010)

3 stars out of 4 -- "Garcia and Marguiles, who worked so well together in George Hickenlooper's MAN FROM ELYSIAN FIELDS, show a sure feel for comedy here..."
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert (03/31/2010)

3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] warmly hilarious movie....Writer-director Raymond De Felitta tells his story modestly, but his gift for laughs laced with charm and bristling humanity is utterly irresistible."
Rolling Stone - Peter Travers (04/15/2010)

3 stars out of 4 -- "[This] dysfunctional family comedy has unexpected charms, tapping into basic truths about human nature and familial relationships. The ensemble cast is strong."
USA Today - Claudia Puig (04/09/2010)

3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[A] very funny film, and one that operates at the sea level of humanity..."
Washington Post - John Anderson (04/09/2010)

"[T]his is a film in which human beings, with their petty foibles and treacheries, are viewed evenly and with affection..."
Sight and Sound - Samuel Wigley (08/01/2010)

City Island

Review For: City Island (DVD, 2010)

City Island is the best dysfunctional-family comedy I've ever seen! The Rizzo family, who lives on City Island in the Bronx, are really strange at first, but then maybe they're really like a lot of families, with their big and little secrets hidden from each other. Dad Vince (Andy Garcia in a great role) is a Corrections Officer at the local prison who probably has the most secrets - everything from smoking, to acting lessons, to that buff 24yr old inmate Tony (Steven Strait) he unexpectedly brings home on parole from jail. Meanwhile his college age daughter, Vivian (Dominik Garcia-Lorido) is allegedly away studying at college - but why the breast enhancement? And then there's my favorite character, Vince Jr (Ezra Miller), the wise cracking teenage boy who has this sexual fantasy involving an internet site, and a 300-lb plus female neighbor. Rounding out the family is the sexually starved wife/mother, Joyce (Julianna Margulies) who has this sort of a scary, controlling personality, and with Tony appearing on the scene, well you can see where that might be going. After a while, Tony just wants to go back to jail where the people are bit more normal. All the secrets play out in the end in this hilarious and intelligent movie script. Alan Arkin has brief, but excellent role as Mike, Vince's acting teacher, while Emily Mortimer plays Molly, Vince's acting school friend in a more substantial role. The casting and acting is all right on - I thought Ezra Miller as Vince Jr. had the best acting and lines. The scenes of the historic seaport of City Island Bronx added a lot as did the excellent soundtrack music. This movie is just a superb comedy, both funny and with a message about understanding and accepting your family members.

Review For: City Island (DVD, 2010)

City Island, a place that personally means something to me, is a rather quaint community island that few really know about in New York. I took a friend there recently after the Bronx Zoo with my sister. Had seen the movie a couple weeks before and thought it really had captured the essence of the community there. Wanted to share that with my out-of town-friend. Old school, family feel. The movie displays a dysfunctional family that reminded me of the kind of humor this particular friend of mine likes best, quirky. Anyway, bought the movie as a birthday gift for her, and she enjoyed it, just like I knew she would.

So, if you like dysfunctional family humor, this is the movie for you. And who doesn't like Andy Garcia anyway?
