2 Days in New York


New York Premiere

France | 91 MINUTES | English, French |


Female Director(s), Comedy

Passionate French photographer Marion (Julie Delpy) and her hip radio host beau Mingus (Chris Rock) live a happily coupled life with their children in a homey New York City apartment. When Marion's eccentric French family descends upon the pair unannounced, the couple is catapulted into two days of escalating mayhem, misunderstandings, and culture clash. Between Marion's delightfully unhinged father (played gleefully by Delpy's real-life Dad, Albert), her sexually frank but juvenile sister, and her sister's boorish boyfriend (also Marion's ex), it will be all Mingus can do to stay sane while the in-laws are in town.

Cleverly following up her hit 2 Days in Paris (TFF 2007), writer/director/star Delpy once again demonstrates her sharp observation of relationships and her wicked and silly sense of humor, while Chris Rock is brilliantly against-type playing it straight opposite Marion's outrageous family. An ensemble of winning comedic performances bring Delpy's astute and funny writing to life, making this comedy of errors a fun and smart romp sure to delight New York audiences.
