Both make their theatrical debuts this weekend - although 2 Days In New York has been available as  a VOD rental for about a month now, meaning some of you likely have already seen it. 

In 2 Days In New York (a sequel to Julie Delpy's 2 Days In Paris), the dramedy comes to Manhattan, as Delpy reprises her role as Marion, a fiercely left-winged French woman living in the city, with her child (fathered by her now ex-lover, Adam Goldberg), and a new guy in her life, a radio jockey named Mingus (because it rhymes with cunninglingus, a running joke in the film, as well as Delpy's explanation for why she gave the character that name; there's also the Charlie Mingus connection) played by Chris Rock, who made me think of Malcolm X almost everytime I saw him on screen, thanks to his goatee and thick-framed spectacles.

Meanwhile, Red Hook Summer tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters), in the housing projects of Red Hook.

I first saw both films at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and wrote reviews for both - read my review of 2 Days In New York, which I liked, HERE; and my review of Red Hook Summer, which I didn't like, HERE.
