When you get married, you’re not just getting a husband or wife—you get the family, the friends, even the exes..
Buzzy (Edward Burns, Saving Private Ryan) and Katie (Caitlin Fitzgerald, It’s Complicated) are newlyweds who seem to have it all, until an unexpected visit from Buzzy’s wild sister, Linda (Kerry Bishé), begins to disrupt their daily routine. Katie’s sister, Marcia (Marsha Dietlein Bennett), has been married to Max (Max Baker) for 18 years and suspects him of being unfaithful. As drama begins to unfold with their respective siblings, Buzzy and Katie begin to question their own relationship and whether they will ever return to their stress-free life..
Written and directed by Edward Burns with crackling humor and sharp insights into modern relationships, NEWLYWEDS tracks the tangled threads of these New Yorkers over three days. Aiming to root out the reality and bypassing the Hollywood sentimentality of love and marriage, Burns takes a pseudo-documentary approach that is no less visually striking for its on-the-fly style. Shot entirely in New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood, it’s a quintessential New York film from a quintessential New York director.
