Writer/director/star Julie Delpy’s sequel to her popular indie rom-com 2 DAYS IN PARIS comes bearing a new titular location, New York City, and a new leading man: Chris Rock, who plays Mingus, boyfriend to Delpy’s Marion. The pair live a happy, comfortable life in Manhattan until Delpy’s family arrives unannounced from France, wreaking pure Gallic havoc and stirring up trouble. After a very well-received premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, the film is making a geographically appropriate stop at the Tribeca Film Festival this week. It doesn’t have a stateside release date yet but it does have a distributor, Magnolia Pictures, so it should just be a matter of time, if not days, before it’s coming to a theater near you.
