2 Days in New York is a new comedy starring Julie Delpy, Chris Rock, Albert Delpy, Alexia Landeau, and Alex Nahon. The film is written and directed by Julia Delpy. I saw Chris Rock on the Graham Norton Show that is on in the UK. Chris was talking about the film, and they showed a clip of the film that was hilarious. I am looking forward to this one. The new poster for the film is below.
“Marion and Mingus live cozily—perhaps too cozily—with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion’s jolly father (played by director Delpy’s real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister’s outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus’s relationship. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters…and no person is left unscathed in its wake.
Directed and cowritten by Delpy, 2 Days in New York is a deliciously witty romp. One of the pleasures of this follow-up film to 2 Days in Paris is the addition of Chris Rock, who—amid the Gallic mayhem—convincingly plays the straight man as Marion’s hipster American boyfriend. With great skill and energy, Delpy heightens cultural differences to comedic extremes but also manages to show that sometimes change is the best solution to a relationship that’s been pushed to its limit.”
2 Days in New York is in theatres August 10, 2012 and on VOD on July 6, 2012.
