As a recap... a strong cast leads Newlyweeds, described by the filmmaker as a gritty, stoner romantic dramedy that stars Amari Cheatom and newcomer Trae Harris, in addition to Isiah WhitlockColman Domingo, Tonya Pinkins, Diane NealAdrian Martinez and Hassan Johnson.

Set to make its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in the next week, its synopsis reads:

Spray painted on the side of Lyle's van is a gargantuan, ejaculating, penis. This is what his community thinks of him. He is a repo man. His sole companion is his girlfriend Nina, an unemployed, capricious, dreamer who lives with her overbearing mother. When mom smells reefer on Nina's towel she gives her the boot, right into Lyle's apartment. But what should be a match made in stoner heaven turns into a love triangle gone awry when Nina starts to suspect that Lyle needs weeds more than he needs her.

The movie is produced by Jim WareckMichael MatthewsShaka King and Gbenga Akinnagbe (making his producing debut).

In the video below, director Shaka King talks about making the film, and intercut with interview footage, you'll find a few sequences from the film, giving you a glimpse at the look of it.
