Vinnie’s been secretly taking actress classes, his daughter’s moonlighting as a stripper, his son’s got a weighty fetish, and mam’s eye is wandering…the Rizzos might get along a lot better if they weren’t keeping so many secrets. Andy Garcia, Julianna Margulies, Emy Mortimer, and Alan Arkin star in this smart and poignant dysfunctional-family comedy, set in unassuming City Island.
