MRQE Pick: City Island
MRQE Metric: 67
This indie gem went largely unnoticed when it opened in limited release in March, and garnered a bit of buzz following its premiere in the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Set in the Bronx neighborhood of the same name, City Island focuses on the Rizzo family and their web of lies that soon gets the best of them. When father Vince (Andy Garcia), learns that his illegitimate child, Tony (Steven Strait) is being held at the same prison where he's a guard, he employs Tony as his help at home. Just as the Rizzos learn about the crazy dysfunctions they're hiding from each other, so too does Tony learn his real truth.
