City Island Blu-Ray Review

City Island Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Vince Rizzo (Andy Garcia) is a lifelong resident of the tiny, tradition-steeped Bronx enclave of City Island. A family man who makes his living as a corrections officer, Vince longs to become an actor. Ashamed to admit his aspirations to his family, Vince would rather let his fiery wife Joyce (Julianna Margulies) believe his weekly poker games are a cover for an extramarital affair than admit he’s secretly taking acting classes in Manhattan. When Vince is asked to reveal his biggest secret in class, he inadvertently sets off a chaotic chain of events that turns his mundane suburban life upside down. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival, City Island spins a web of misrepresentations, misinterpretations and misunderstandings into a smart and charming comedy about a family that stops at nothing to avoid the truth.

Review: City Island is a mess!  Its a good movie, but these characters are a mess!  Their lives are full of deceipt and lies and secret desire that eventually comes to the natural conclusion of chaos!   I really enjoyed this one, it shows a disfunctional family dynamic in the modern world.  A man going through what is clearly a mid-life crisis and a woman struggling with finding validation in her older age.   

The blu-ray of this film looks great.  Watching anything in high-definition is far superior.  This is a great film to watch anytime.  It has some laughs and great comedic-style drama that is sure to delight.

Interest Range: Comedy, Drama
