When you get married, you're not just getting a husband or wife—you get the family, the friends, even the exes. Buzzy and Katie are newlyweds. Katie's meddlesome sister Marsha has been married to Buzzy's friend Max for 18 years. As Marsha and Max's marriage is crumbling under the weight of life together as empty-nesters, Buzzy and Katie's honeymoon period is upended when Buzzy's wild-child baby sister shows up at the couple's TriBeCa apartment with more than a little baggage.
With crackling humor and sharp insights into modern relationships, writer/director/actor Edward Burns tracks the tangled threads of these New Yorkers over three days. Aiming to root out the reality and bypassing the Hollywood sentimentality of love and marriage, he takes a documentary approach that is no less visually striking for its on-the-fly style. Shot entirely in TriBeCa, it's a quintessential New York film from a quintessential New York director. Burns has a singular way of getting past the veil of anonymity that comes with living in this city to really strike the core of his characters, played with candor and confidence by a top-notch ensemble that includes himself, Caitlin FitzGerald, Max Baker, Marsha Dietlein Bennett, and Kerry Bishé.
EDWARD BURNS won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and an Independent Spirit Award for his first feature, The Brothers McMullen, in 1995. He continues to write, direct, star in, and produce his films, including She's the One, Sidewalks of New York, Purple Violets, and Nice Guy Johnny. Newlyweds is Burns' sixth film in the Tribeca Film Festival.
