Julie Delpy Tries to Out-Woody Woody Allen with ’2 Days in New York’

In addition to her long acting resume, Julie Delpy seems to be carving out a nice, modest little career as a director. It’s just that the director happens to be named Woody Allen.

In fairness, we haven’t seen all of Delpy’s directorial outings, but with ’2 Days in Paris’ and the new ‘2 Days in New York‘ — for which the trailer can be seen below — the French actress/filmmaker seems to be actively channeling the man from the Upper West Side.

You’ve got the Big Apple setting, the befuddled male lead in glasses (played disarmingly by Chris Rock, of all people), the ensemble of off-center characters, and the usual mix of romantic comedy, sight gags, farce and sexual antics as Delpy’s French family comes to visit her and boyfriend Rock in New York.

The synopsis reads:

Marion and Mingus live cozily — perhaps too cozily — with their cat and two young children from previous relationships. However, when Marion’s jolly father (played by director Delpy’s real-life dad), her oversexed sister, and her sister’s outrageous boyfriend unceremoniously descend upon them for a visit, it initiates two unforgettable days that will test Marion and Mingus’s relationship. With their unwitting racism and sexual frankness, the French triumvirate hilariously has no boundaries or filters… and no person is left unscathed in its wake.

We weren’t huge fans of ‘Paris,’ but this one looks a bit funnier and frothier. ’2 Days in New York’ hits VOD on July 6 and theaters on August 10.
