Shaka King’s feature film debut, ‘NEWLYWEEDS‘ is an insightful dark comedy about love and marijuana. Lyle works as a repo man, delivering some of the funniest and most serious scenes in the film. Nina is a free spirit and an occasional baker who decides to work at a children’s museum in order to save money for a trip to the Galapagos. And the only thing that keeps them both sane is smoking pot.
The Sundance Film Festival favorite film begins an exclusive run at New York’s Film Forum from September 18 – October 1, 2013.

‘Newlyweeds‘ is a sophisticated stoner romantic comedy, a rare film that graciously walks the fine line between the ills and the humor of chemical dependency. The film boasts amazing performances from co-leads Amari Cheatom — known for his role in ‘Night Catches Us‘ — and newcomer Trae Harris, plus cameos from ‘The Wire‘ veterans Hassan Johnson and Isiah Whitlock, Jr.
