It's official: "City Island" will have it's US Premiere this April at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival. Click here for the New York Times "Carpetbagger" mention of our film's inclusion in this increasingly prestigious film festival--a welcome addition to the New York film scene and a relief from the once omnipotent but now dreary and marginalized New York Film Festival. (Just the titles of the films the NYFF invites cause a wave of exhaustion to sweep over me). I'll be posting more information--about screening times, q&a's and panels that I (and the cast) might be doing as I get this information.
And now, in a spirit of celebration, here is a ridiculous clip from a mid-60's variety show that I've recently become aware of called "Hullabaloo". Dig Jerry Lewis and his oldest son Gary Lewis singing...are you sitting down?..."Help" by the Beatles.
