The Meyerowitz Stories trailer – The Netflix original, featuring an all-star cast, arrives in October
From writer/director Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is the emotional and comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives. With an original screenplay by Baumbach, the film also stars Emma Thompson, Grace Van Patten, Adam Driver, Candice Bergen, Judd Hirsch, and Rebecca Miller. The film was produced by Scott Rudin, Baumbach, Lila Yacoub, and Eli Bush.
We caught the film at Cannes and instantly fell in love with it. The movie features a stunning performance from Adam Sandler, one which could throw him in the mix this coming awards season.
We have some new posters for the film too.
Undoubtedly a hit with audiences in Cannes in a very controversial year, Baumbach’s film, while not amongst his best work, still manages to impress in almost every frame. Truly funny, tugging in all of the right places, the Meyerowitz’s are not a family to immediately warm to, but their selected short stories being told here really do manage to hit all of the right notes. A brilliant piece of work.
