From the mid-19th century onwards - against the background of industrialization, the supremacy of bourgeois values, and an intellectual climate dominated by secular materialistic and scientific positivism - art became realistic, seeking to show things as they really were - almost photographically -, rather than making them more amiable or more beautiful. An opera such as La Boheme, which talks of the fragile nature of happiness in a world of poverty, cold and disease, is an obvious example of this trend. In La Boheme, however, the aesthetic of Verism - the Italian equivalent of the French Naturalism of Emile Zola - becomes more sentimental an everyday lives amid dreams and disappointments, waiting for the event that is to win them renown, but poverty and misfortune deprive the leading characters - Mimi and Rodolfo - of the joy of mutual love. The text and music relate all this with a pleasant melodramatic tenderness with which it is easy to identify.

When you get married, you're not just getting a husband or wife-you get the family, the friends, even the exes. Buzzy and Katy are newlyweds. Katy's meddlesome sister Marcia has been married to Buzzy's friend Max for 18 years. As Marcia and Max's marriage is crumbling under the weight of life together as empty-nesters, Buzzy and Katy's honeymoon period is upended when Buzzy's wild-child baby sister shows up at the couple's TriBeCa apartment with more than a little baggage. With crackling humor and sharp insights into modern relationships, writer/director/actor Edward Burns tracks the tangled threads of these New Yorkers over three days. Aiming to root out the reality and bypassing the Hollywood sentimentality of love and marriage, he takes a documentary approach that is no less visually striking for its on-the-fly style. Shot entirely in TriBeCa, it's a quintessential New York film from a quintessential New York director. Burns has a singular way of getting past the veil of anonymity that comes with living in this city to really strike the core of his characters, played with candor and confidence by a top-notch ensemble that includes himself, Caitlin FitzGerald, Max Baker, Marsha Dietlein Bennett, and Kerry Bishe.
