City Island

Pitch perfect comedy about the secrets a family hides from each other.  Title refers to the area of the Bronx where the film is set. Everyone is superb in this ensemble cast, particularly Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies as the  married couple at the center of it all.  Script deftly handles multiple plot threads brilliantly, as it tells its tale of a dysfunctional family.  Genuine eccentricities on display, but in a delightfully amusing and at times, touching sort of way.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry and for all the right reasons.  A warm hearted movie that deserves to be seen by more people.
