The best 'Newlyweeds' grow with darkness
4 August 2013 | by cgales1170See all my reviews

New director Shaka King certainly makes a name for himself with this dark dramedy, Newlyweeds. The film follows the evolution of a relationship between two lovers, who share a love both for each other and for marijuana. Regardless of your stance on smoking, the film is full of laughs that everyone can understand, albeit sometimes they are a bit dark. Amari Cheatom of Django Unchained demands attention on the screen and delivers an amazing performance, which only parallel the performances delivered by his costars. This film is much smarter and much more complex than your average stoner film, so it certainly shouldn't be written off as one.
