Newlyweds is the 10th film written and directed by Burns. Filmed in a fast 12-day rhythm exclusively in the Tribeca district of New York, the film is a chronicle of modern marriage, full of crackling humor and deep insights into the contemporary relationships that Burns fans have come to love.

A 21st century love story in Manhattan, Newlyweds highlights the unquestionable truth that when you get married you will not only have a husband or wife, but you will receive family, friends and even ex.
The cast includes Burns, Caitlin FitzGerald (it’s complicated), Max Baker, Marsha Dietlein Bennett and Kerry Bishé (good boy Johnny, Scrubs). Burns produced the newlyweds with production partners Aaron Lubin and William Rexer. Mike Harrop was an executive producer. I’ve had a great relationship with the Tribeca Film Festival since its inception and I’m so excited to work with them to bring the couple to a large commercial audience, “said Burns.” The only cross-platform release of Nice Guy Johnny has opened new horizons last year and brought my work to the public who traditionally had problems accessing independent films in the hall. I am extremely confident that we will really succeed in achieving this success now that we have Tribeca Film on board for Newlyweds. ”
“The newlyweds show how a true direction can arise from intentionally modest circumstances, realized with a notably reduced budget, it is a rich and resonant exploration of relationships that come to life thanks to an intense work of localization and lively and intelligent performances”, said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises. “We can not wait to introduce Newlyweds to the North American public”. The deal was negotiated by Nick Savva, Director of Acquisitions and Nancy Schafer, SVP, for Tribeca Film with Burns and Lubin together with John Sloss of Cinetic Media. -traveled path blazed earlier by Woody Allen, but his story is crisp and new by some very intimate performances, “observed Movieline, Bishe and Fitzgerald” excel at playing resentment on the screen, “Elle magazine excited. businesses in the New York B & H electronics chain end with the catchy slogan, “Go to B & H!” Clearly, Burns agrees. “We shot this film with this new camera called Canon 5D, which is a $ 3000 camera that you can buy in B & H. That’s where we bought it It was like, ‘Well, let’s see what this thing can do.’ We have heard great things about it. ”
The small camera allowed Burns to resume in a style that the most important directors might not be used to. “We used almost no light during the filming of the movie … When we went and walked in [local restaurants] Walker’s or Ivy’s Bistro or Estancia or anywhere in Tribeca – you know I’ve lived here for 11 years, I know everyone who They have shops and restaurants, so I said, “You think we could book a table Saturday night, we’ll be in a corner, you will not know we’re there. We do not have a boom, ‘- because the actors wore only a wireless microphone. ‘We have this little camera, without lights.’ We entered – and who knows, maybe some of you were sitting at the table next to us and saw us making this film. This was the way we did it. The amazing thing about [making Newlyweds] was – since it was a pseudo-doc, after about two days of filming we discovered that we were capturing these very real and natural performances. And that’s where – all these actors wore their clothes, without hair, without makeup, without scriptwriters, without a set designer; every position was just an existing position, we focused. But in shooting in these live environments, we started to see: these are real and a bit ‘uncomfortable performance, and you feel like you are eavesdropping. So, it was kind of how it came. “The independence of the Newlyweds allowed Burns to experiment and collaborate.” We did it in 12 days of filming; I know it sounds like a crazy way of making a film, but it has been liberating for all of us. We could come up with an idea for a scene – and since there was not a giant crew and we’re turning it on – we could just whip up a scene, turn it around; we would like to cut it, look at it, decide if we liked it or not, or what we liked, and then I would rewrite a version of that scene, and then we would resume it a week later. I’m lucky that I had actors who were completely down with this program.
