Two of my favorite official selections from this year’s Sundance Film Festival are now headed to DVD/Blu-ray this week. Female filmmakers for the win!
“2 Days in New York” is the sort-of sequel to Julie Delpy’s hilarious “2 Days in Paris” (currently on Netflix Instant). Chris Rock stars alongside writer/director/actress Delpy as the new boyfriend who meets her crazy French family for their 24-hours in New York City. Dubbed the female Woody Allen, you can read more about Delpy, her method and the film HERE.
“The Queen of Versailles” is a rare riches to rags story of a Florida millionaire couple who are hit hard by the financial crisis while attempting to build the world’s largest single-family home. Director Lauren Greenfield followed the family for two years and it shows. The documentary won Best Director in the documentary category at Sundance. My review: “The Queen of Versailles”.
