Movie Info

Lyle is a repo-man, an often perilous and/or heart breaking enterprise. His sole companion is his girlfriend Nina, an unemployed, capricious, dreamer. To dull the stress of their daily lives, they self-medicate with marijuana. But what should be a match made in stoner heaven turns into a love triangle gone awry in this dark comedy about addiction.(c) Official Facebook


Critic Reviews for Newlyweeds

All Critics (17) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (12) | Rotten (5)

  • Newlyweeds is a naturalistic portrait, with a few hallucinatory flourishes, of a very specific relationship in a very specific place.

  • Shaka King's low-budget debut feature is slim on plot but rich in attitude and on-the-ground detail of New York neighborhood life.

    Nov 21, 2013 | Full Review…
  • A smoky, jazzy, biting and heartfelt comedy about two young people, one love affair, American life, African-American life, Brooklyn and - oh, yeah - weed.

  • It's a special movie. Odd, disjointed and not entirely coherent, but special.

    Sep 20, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie at last finds its legs in a windup that has great compassion for these sweet, lost souls.

    Sep 20, 2013 | Full Review…
  • More a series of darkly comic vignettes than a conventional romance, King's exploration of chemically altered human chemistry is amusing if slight, and his two leads are appealingly solid, especially Cheatom.
