City Island

Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies are Italian American New Yorkers living with their two children on 'City Island'; an old fishing village in the Bronx district. Each is keeping secrets from the others.

I could describe this as a quiet little comedy except for the fact that playing Italian American New Yorkers - and beautifully against usual type - Garcia and Margulies shout a lot. Nevertheless, I found the characters and situations endearing and enjoyed plenty of chuckles as the secrets unravel.

Who knew that New York contained such an interesting suburban waterside area?


  1. I'll have to check this one out!

  2. I once knew someone who lived on City Island. Back in the 70s. Yes, the nineteen seventies. Thanks for asking. ;)
