"City Island"

Andy Garcia stars in this "dramedy" (drama – comedy).  Andy plays Correctional Officer Rizzo from the City Island (Bronx, NY).  He has a wife, daughter, and a son. They live in City Island, a fishing village in the middle of the Bronx!  Things seem like normal save for a few skeletons in the closet.  Below is the short list of the skeletons:
  • Andy wants to be an actor.
  • Andy, his Wife, Son, and Daughter all smoke but don't think the others know.
  • Andy has another Son who is a felon in the prison where he works. His Son does not know who his Father is.
  • No one else knows about the Son in prison.
  • The Daughter was in college but was suspended.  She works as a Stripper.
  • Andy's other Son who is in High School really likes fat women.
Bottom-line:  A lot of interesting things to play out in a movie... done really well!  Another IFC-style movie that is funny!  Check it out when you get a chance; safe first date movie.
