The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)
DIRECTOR: NOAH BAUMBACH
CAST: ADAM SANDLER, BEN STILLER, DUSTIN HOFFMAN, EMMA THOMPSON
Noah Baumbach in person to introduce and for a Q&A.
The outsized personality of Dustin Hoffman’s high-handed sculptor and fading patriarch Harold Meyerowitz weighs heavily on his dysfunctional clan, including current wife Emma Thompson, daughter Elizabeth Marvel, and sons Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler, the latter giving a performance so undeniable that even the dullest commentators have finally been convinced he’s a great actor. A deeply-felt comedy of manners from Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Frances Ha), an expert in trussing up stifling family ties.
World Premiere of the 35mm print.
