Newlyweeds

Like Keith Miller's Welcome to Pine Hill and Adam Leon's Gimme the Loot (both 2012), Shaka King's low-budget debut feature is slim on plot but rich in attitude and on-the-ground detail of New York neighborhood life. The protagonists are a young, unmarried couple in Bedford-Stuyvesant whose lives revolve around getting stoned; predictably, they end up making mistakes that cause them to rethink their lifestyle. This is no indictment of drug culture—King is too modest in his scope and too affectionate toward the various doper supporting characters—but instead a colorful story of two people undone by it.
