City Island

City Island (2010) PG-13
City Island, like its location off the shore of the Bronx in New York, is a hidden gem. You know the saying, ”Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.”  That’s basically what this movie is about. It’s funny, charming, and touching.  You get a glimpse into the life of a quintessential “close-knit” Italian family, where they’re all hiding something from each other. The mother and father of this dysfunctional family are excellently played by Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies. Don’t read too much about what this film is about, or it will ruin the fun of it. Just watch it with no expectations, as I did, and I’m sure you will be glad that you did.
