The Netflix/Adam Sandler partnership has been a disastrous collaboration. It looks like that’s about to change with The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).
Sandler co-stars with Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, and Emma Thompson in the new dysfunctional family drama from a filmmaker who knows how to make them, writer/director Noah Baumbach.
A frequent writing partner on Wes Anderson‘s films, Baumbach is more hit-and-miss with his own movies. But when he hits – in gems like Frances Ha or The Squid and the Whale (his best) – his well-observed character ensembles are some of the best New York stories this side of Woody Allen.
Following its premiere to rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival this past spring, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) will debut on Netflix and in select theaters on October 13, 2017.
