Delpy’s films work because they run at the pace of life and awkward conversations take place over the most mundane tasks, like making coffee or picking up breakfast.Julie Delpy proves that a film does not always need to contain epic, action sequences with special effects or scary dragons as she states, that sometimes, “life is way harder to handle than any dragon.” “2 Days in New York” definitely confirms this statement and is just as action packed with doses of explosive reality as any Hollywood action movie.Saturday Night (1992), closely followed by a small part in Dazed and Confused (1993) playing a neurotic high school junior.Through the next few years, Goldberg bounced around from film to television in relative obscurity.Jack describes Marion like a hamster, “collecting men like nuts”.In “2 days in New York” the audience can see the development of Marion’s character who is now thirty-eight, and in a more mature relationship with Mingus, possibly inspired by her parents’ many years of marriage.Julie Delpy made her film debut at age 14 in a Godards DETECTIVE (released in 1985), and shes been a successful actress ever since.
Marion describes Rose to Mingus as an ‘ex-nympho,’ and Mingus is subjected to Rose’s charms as she struts around the house naked within seconds of meeting him.
Even if you haven’t seen the prequel, the plot of “2 days in New York” is fairly easy to follow.
The audience is invited into Marion’s apartment in New York where she is now living with her son from ex-boyfriend Jack, Lulu, her new boyfriend, Mingus (played by Chris Rock), and his daughter from a previous marriage, Willow.
Small roles in Higher Learning (1995) and The Prophecy (1996), along with voice work with Homeward Bound II did little to add to his fame.
In 1996, he was cast in a starring role in the series Relativity, playing Doug.
