2 Days In New York

Marion and Mingus live cozily with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion’s jolly father (played by Delpy’s real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister’s outrageous boyfriend 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. One of the pleasures of Delpy's follow-up film to 2 DAYS IN PARIS is 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.
