City Island wins Auduence Award @ 2009 Tribeca Film Festival

Andy Garcia starrer centers on dysfunctional N.Y. family

By Steven Zeitchik

The Hollywood Reporter

NEW YORK -- Audiences at the Tribeca Film Festival on Saturday night voted "City Island," Raymond De Felitta's tale of a dysfunctional family in a far-flung New York City neighborhood, their favorite pic.

Andy Garcia produces and stars -- and Julianna Margulies, Emily Mortimer and Alan Arkin co-star -- in the story of a family on an island near the Bronx where both children and parents mislead each other about their respective foibles.

Among those deceptions, the father, a prison guard played by Garcia, secretly takes acting lessons while his usually stable wife (Margulies) falls for a worker at their household. Garcia's real-life daughter Domink Garcia Lorido plays one of the couple's children, who is moonlighting as a stripper.

Indie banner Lucky Monkey Pictures produced.

The film's capturing of the Heineken Audience Award should bolster its sales prospects. Paradigm is repping rights to the pic, with several buyers believed to be interested.

On Friday, Tribeca saw a rare sale off a fest screening, with Magnolia paying low- to mid-six figures for world rights to Conor McPherson's supernaturally themed character drama "The Eclipse," which had its world premiere at the festival last weekend.

The fest screens all its winning films Sunday, after formally closing with Fox Searchlight's romantic comedy "My Life in Ruins" on Saturday night.
