Manhattan couple Marion and Mingus, who each have children from prior relationships, find their comfortable family dynamic jostled by a visit from Marion's relatives.
Magnolia Pictures has released the first trailer and poster for 2 Days in New York, writer-director-star Julie Delpy's new comedy co-starring Chris Rock. Take a look at this indie follow-up to 2 Days in Paris.
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.
