Just moments ago I posted a confused blast of impatience directed toward the Festival in Rio that will be showing "City Island". In the post (which I've left up and can be viewed below) I offered to eat my hat if I were wrong about them backing out of showing the movie.
I hearby direct you to this link, which shows the many showtimes and lovely theaters our movie is showing in, in that great city named for the month of January, Rio De Janeiro. May the good citizens of Brazil accept my humble thanks and apologies for ever doubting your fabulously good instincts on world cinema. And I may I take this opportunity to convey my thanks for the music of Antonio ("They called him Tom") Carlos Jobim, who I included in the previous post? And what of all the wonderful Brazilian food and drink we have? I can't think of anything specific, but I'm sure I've enjoyed a Brazilian cocktail and probably a heavily spiced and salted hunk of meat prepared according to some ancient Brazilian recipe at some point along the way. And just think--if not for Brazil, we wouldn't have the name "Copacabana". And without that name, we wouldn't have that glorious work of art by Barry Manilow!
