“…The attention-grabber is King’s mosaic-like depiction of Brooklyn, shot with a captivating vibrancy by Daniel Patterson. The sights, sounds and sociological quirks of Lyle’s and Nina’s particular circle of existence are what give NEWLYWEEDS its indie resonance, less a city symphony than an urban alt-fugue.”
