In the latest dark comedy from writer/director Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, MVFF 2005), Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel deliver hysterical turns as a trio of estranged, dysfunctional siblings who gather together in New York City to celebrate the work of their father Harold Meyerowitz (Dustin Hoffman), a minor, largely uncelebrated sculptor in his golden years, whose art has been selected to be a part of a group show. A major hit at this year’s Cannes Film Festival with a tone reminiscent of his screenwriting collaborations with Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic, Fantastic Mr. Fox), The Meyerowitz Stories showcases Baumbach’s wit and offers Sandler, who shines as the eldest Meyerowitz sibling, his best role since starring in Paul Thomas Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love 15 years ago. Candice Bergen, Emma Thompson, and Adam Driver round out the all-star cast in unforgettable supporting roles.
