The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected) – The Review

15 October 2017 6:13 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected) is currently streaming on Netflix

Review by Stephen Tronicek

The first character that we’re introduced to in The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected), Noah Baumbach’s new best movie, ever is Danny (Adam Sandler) who feels like a pretty good representation of the film itself. As he drives around the streets of New York City, looking for a parking spot, his college-age daughter in tow, you see kindness in almost all of his actions. A need to please and connect with the young woman about to go off to college. And yet, every once in awhile, he snaps. Maybe it is the inability to actually find a parking spot, maybe it is the festering disconnect that he is having with his separated wife, maybe it is everything, but when push comes to shove Danny Meyerowitz screams f-words at drivers who can’t hear »

Harvey Weinstein, and the need for noise

15 October 2017 2:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Oct 16, 2017

In the light of revelations and allegations about Harvey Weinstein, surely this time Hollywood needs to change.

I got a letter the other day, that I’m not going to quote, but one that made fair points. The letter asked why Den Of Geek hadn’t really covered the Harvey Weinstein scandal, and it caught me, oddly, in the middle of piecing together a feature about what’s been happening over the past decades, but only come to prominence – and crucially been believed – over the past week or so.

Yet the truth is I’ve struggled with this one. On the one hand, we’ve never run ‘personal’ stories as a rule, and in particular, getting clicks off such reports feels wrong (I’m offsetting »

Angie Everhart and Minka Kelly Come Forward With Stories About Harvey Weinstein

13 October 2017 1:49 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

This article includes explicit description of an alleged sexual assault.

Angie Everhart and Minka Kelly are the latest women in Hollywood speaking out against Harvey Weinstein

Everhart called into the Frosty, Heidi and Frank radio show on Friday morning, where she accused Weinstein of inappropriate behavior while she was on a private boat at the Venice Film Festival years ago. 

"I had just arrived and I was sleeping. I was in my bed. I wake up, and Harvey is standing above my bed," she alleged. "Now, that alone is frightening." Everhart claimed that Weinstein had taken his pants off and was masturbating, and that he was also blocking the door. 

"I can't get out," she said. "And then he says, 'You're a really nice girl. You shouldn't tell anybody about this.'"

Heidi Klum Addresses Harvey Weinstein Scandal After He's Stripped of 'Project Runway' Executive Producer Title

13 October 2017 10:59 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Heidi Klum finds the recent sexual harassment and assault allegations against Harvey Weinstein to be "horrible," but notes that the mistreatment of women isn't just an issue in Hollywood. 

On Friday, the 44-year-old supermodel was the latest celebrity to release a statement admonishing Weinstein's alleged behavior and praising the women that have brought these grievances to light.

"I wish I could say that the horrible stories I read about Harvey Weinstein are a rare occurrence in our society, but that is simply not the case," says Klum. "We would be naive to think that this behavior only happens in Hollywood. This is one example of the more pervasive problem of the mistreatment of women around the world."

Emma Thompson: Harvey Weinstein Is Not a Sex Addict, "He's a Predator"

13 October 2017 7:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Emma Thompson very firmly believes Harvey Weinstein is a sexual predator, not a sex addict, and that he is far from the only one in Hollywood.

Like many of the women and men who have spoken out since the New York Times and New Yorker exposés unearthed decades of alleged sexual harassment and abuse at the hands of the powerful Hollywood movie mogul, the British actress says she didn't know about the accusations. She does, however, know firsthand about Weinstein's "bullying" behavior, which is why hearing the stories now doesn't come as a surprise.

Jane Fonda says she'd heard about Harvey Weinstein's alleged sexual misconduct long before the scandal broke last week, and she's "ashamed" she never spoke out about it.

Sitting down with CNNMoney's Christiane Amanpour on Thursday, the Grace and Frankie star said she's "glad" the sexual harassment accusations are coming out and she's "so proud of those fellow actors that are speaking up."

"I know that it’s taken a long time. It’s a very, very, very, hard thing to do. You don’t get anything out of it as the person who has been victimized. But it’s important that it come out," Fonda said.

Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct and sexual assault by dozens of women who have come forth over the last week, with allegations stretching back over three decades.

Updated Oct. 13: Producer Stephen Woolley reacts to Thompson interview, talks about Weinstein

Emma Thompson has called on Hollywood to heed the lessons of the Harvey Weinstein saga and said many opportunities were missed to bring his actions to wider attention.

In a lengthy interview with BBC news program “Newsnight,” the British actor (“Nanny McPhee”) said the allegations against Weinstein did not come as a shock.

“I didn’t know about these things but they don’t surprise me at all and they are endemic to the system anyway,” she said. “What I find extraordinary is that this man is at the top of a very particular iceberg. He’s a Predator. What he is top of the ladder of, is a system of harassment and belittling and bullying and interference.”

She said she had angry run-ins with Weinstein when negotiating over “Nanny McPhee” rights, and applauded the women who have spoken out against the Hollywood producer »

U.K. Industry Slams Harvey Weinstein, Calls for Gender Parity

11 October 2017 1:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The British Film Institute and Women in Film & TV industry group weighed in Wednesday on the Harvey Weinstein scandal, describing it as an appalling consequence of the lack of gender parity in the entertainment world. British government culture secretary Karen Bradley said the accusations against the legendary Hollywood producer were “very disturbing.”

Funding organization BFI plays a central role in British film and said accounts of Weinstein’s allegedly abusive behavior would not have taken as long to emerge if the industry had a better gender balance. The institute recently published a study highlighting issues affecting the U.K. film business, including gender and diversity.

“We wholeheartedly support those brave enough to come forward and speak out,” the BFI said in a statement on the unfolding scandal surrounding Weinstein. It added that “the film industry urgently needs more women represented on every level, on and off screen. We don’t believe this situation would have taken so long »

'The Meyerowitz Stories' Review: All-Star Family Dramedy Is Flat-Out Brilliant

11 October 2017 1:12 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Noah Baumbach makes family movies that feel lived in – the kind that banter, bristle and sometimes bleed. The real kind. To the company of The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding and While We're Young, you can add The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), a literate New York comedy of bad family manners in which Baumbach rarely sends out a line of dialogue without a sting in its tail.

The film plays like a series of New Yorker short stories bound by blood ties. The Meyerowitz clan lives »

Rebecca Miller, whose documentary on her father, Arthur Miller: Writer, is also screening during this year's festival, took on the role of Loretta (named after Loretta Young or Loretta Lynn, we wondered, and if Maureen came from Maureen O'Hara) in her friend Noah Baumbach's latest. Adam Sandler is Danny, one of the Meyerowitz sons.
