Shaka King delivers Newlyweeds in his directorial debut. I thought the premise for this film was very well delivered and well paced. I also really enjoyed the development of the characters and the situations they found themselves in. The acting was better than I anticipated and the cast includes Amari Cheatom, Trae Harris, Tone Tank, Isiah Whitlock, Tonya Pinkins, and Diane Neal.

This was an independent film I came across while scrolling through Netflix and decided to give a chance. The overall film unfolds well and tells an interesting tale. I also thought the characters and script were well written and executed. Overall, this is worth seeing once but may not be worth adding to your DVD collection because you'll likely only watch it once.
