May’s Featured Woman’s Film: 2 Days in New York (Julie Delpy, 2012)
Julie Delpy returns with a sequel to her 2007 film 2 Days in Paris with a new man, but all the same neuroses.
This is reportedly the antidote to Hollywood’s depictions of women in rom-coms in their late-30s as, “having the problems of a 25-year-old. Like, should I date him, should I not date him? Should I have sex with him but tell him I don’t like him? OK. I mean, I have friends who are still single, but even they don’t ask themselves those kind of questions. They’ve evolved into something else.”
