We adored this film. Beautifully written, directed and performed by the actors. The characters are wonderful. Andy Garcia is heartbreakingly believable as a decent man looking for his "artist within" and for meaning in his life. The scenes with him and his wife are so funny and true, all the married couples in the audience couldn't stop laughing. And their kids are charming and spot on. In todays world where special effects and blood and guts have numbed us, this film, City Island, will warm your hearts.
