Magnolia Pictures has released a new poster and 15 photos from romantic-comedy 2 Days In New York
, a delightful and sophisticated follow-up to 2007 hit, 2 Days in Paris
, starring Chris Rock
and Julie Delpy
as a New York couple facing an uncomfortable visit from family.
Here’s the synopsis for the film:
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 opens in France on March 28th, 2012 there is no set American release date.
