The Meyerowitz Stories: Epic Performance From Sandler, Stiller & Hoffman

The Meyerowitz Stories starring Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson - Netflix

Follow the Meyerowitz siblings as they try to cope with their aging eccentric dad who is delusional about his past.

Written and directed by the brilliant Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories are about three siblings who live in the shadow of their father who never made it. Starring an all-star cast including Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman and Emma Thompson, it is the without a doubt Netflix’ best movie yet.

Sculptor Harold Meyerowitz hasn’t been a good family man, even less a good father. His 3 children from 4 marriages constantly try to live up to his reputation which never was, but they are still trying.

This is not your average Sandler/Stiller movie, nor is it your average Hoffman. Don’t get me wrong, it is extremely funny, but equally deep and emotional. Noah Baumbach excelled with the script, which witt and complexity replace the need for graphic humor.

The Meyerowitz Stories first premiered on May 21, at the Cannes Film Festival, where it had been selected to compete for the Palme d’Or in the main competition section and proceeded to win the Palm Dog award. It was released by Netflix on October 13, 2017, and is also being screened at select theaters across the US.
