Brooklyn residents Lyle and Nina blaze away the stress of living in New York City, but what should be a match made in stoner heaven turns into a love triangle gone awry.


(Shaka King | 87 min.) Winner of the Rooftop Films and Edgeworx Studios Post-Production Grant, Shaka King’s feature film debut is an insightful dark comedy about love and marijuana. Lyle works as a repo man, delivering some of the funniest and 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.

However, the high times start to become low for the couple when Nina’s 420-friendly boss smokes up all their good stuff. Subsequently, their easy-going relationship goes up in smoke. Lyle’s life takes a hit after he blows Nina off to get high with his co-worker. And while pot never seemed to ruin him, Lyle seems to have a drinking problem, because after accidentally drinking liquor, he spirals even further out of control. Will their love for each other and Mary Jane survive?

Don’t let the title fool you, 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.

Newlyweeds received a great response from this year’s Sundance Film Festival and was quickly picked up for distribution from Phase 4 Films for release later this summer. We are proud to screen Newlyweeds on our new open-air rooftop at the Trilok Community Center in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, not far from where the movie was filmed.
