The Meyerowitz Stories has an excellent movie trailer. It is a 2017 American comedy-drama film directed and written by Noah Baumbach. The film stars Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel as adult siblings and their father, played by Dustin Hoffman. Emma Thompson Grace Van Patten, Adam Driver, and Candice Bergen round out the cast. The film was selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. It is scheduled will be released in the US theaters on October 13, 2017, by on Netflix.
It is immediately intriguing by virtue of having Adam Sandler adopting his little-seen sensitive actor mode. Given the slew of lamentable comedies that have become synonymous with his name, it is strangely moving to see the actor tenderly and competently singing duets with his 18-year-old daughter, Eliza.
This is a family in which the member multitude of resentments and complaints erupt with the reliability of Old Faithful. Danny has actually nothing to talk about but his own inadequacies and failures. The latter is shortly on display when the old man takes his son to a Museum of Modern Art reception honoring an old rival, precipitating more free-flowing grievances from Harold.
This film plot is about daisy-chain of comic vignettes, crafted to smuggle in the characters back stories and examine the emotional baggage that hampers these relations. Danny and owl spectacled sister, Jean are the family losers, while their half-brother Matt, a personal-wealth advisor, is the pride of the Meyerowitz clan. Matt still has daddy issues, however, as Howard uses their time together to gripe and grumble, rather than to dispense much-longed-for affirmation.
