MOVIE REVIEW

Review by Nathan Samdahl (B)

City Island is a surprisingly funny and charming dramedy from filmmaker Raymond De Felitta.  Not having seen any of De Felitta's earlier films, based on the trailer, I expected City Island to be average at best, chocked full of quirky characters and good ideas, but suffering from mediocre execution.  However, I was happily proven wrong as the strength of the performances, particularly from Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies, and a great climactic scene at the end where the shit really hits the fan. The film is enjoyable throughout. Full movie review »
