Proud papi Andy Garcia walked the red carpet alongside his stunning daughter Dominik Garcia-Lorido with whom he co-stars in the new movie City Island.
“As a father I’m very proud of her, and as an actress,” he explained.
“This is the third time we’ve worked together.”
In the comedy directed by Raymond De Fellita you meet the Rizzos, a family that might get along a lot better if only they could tell each other the truth. Dad Vince (Andy Garcia) is the worst offender. But since the prison guard won’t even admit that poker night is in fact acting class, how’s he ever going to explain about his illegitimate son?
His daughter (Dominik Garcia-Lorido) works as a stripper when she’s supposed to be in college, while young Vinnie Jr (Ezra Miller) has a secret sexual fetish that involves a 24-hour webcam and the family’s 300-pound neighbor. Vince’s wife Joyce (Juliana Marguiles) is the family’s rock, but it’s been a year since she enjoyed intimacy with her husband, and it’s no surprise she thinks poker night spells A-F-F-A-I-R.
“The drama and heartache and pain, it’s kind of like the blues. I enjoy it but the comedic aspect is something that’s very uplifting. Andy said.”
In real life, he says he’s doesn’t like to lie.
“I try to stay away from that, I’ve got too many things on my mind than to worry about things I said yesterday that weren’t true!”
City Island opens in New York and Los Angeles on March 19th.
