Nyff: The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

29 September 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Team Experience is at the New York Film Festival. Here's Manuel Betancourt on Noah Baumbach's new film, coming to Netflix on October 13th.

If the title hadn't clued you in just yet, Noah Baumbach's latest frames itself as a collection of short stories. Explaining this structure at a press screening during the New York Film Festival, the Frances Ha and The Squid and the Whale director said it had helped him create these discrete "stories" that together would tell a larger narrative about this (you guessed it) dysfunctional family.

We first meet Danny (Adam Sandler in full Punch Drunk Love mode), a middle-aged man who can't help but get needlessly irritated at the parking situation in New York as he heads to visit his father with his college-bound daughter in tow (Grace Van Patten, a revelation). Harold (Dustin Hoffman), who now lives with Maureen (Emma Thompson, having a »

With ‘The Meyerowitz Stories,’ Noah Baumbach Is Shooting on Film Again (And He’s Not Going Back to Digital)

27 September 2017 2:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With his “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected),” filmmaker Noah Baumbach is returning to familiar — and fertile — territory, thanks to the eponymous family at the heart of the feature. Kitted out with a cast that include Adam Sandler in the somehow-still-rare dramatic role, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel, Emma Thompson, and Ben Stiller, familial dysfunction, a Baumbach mainstay, drives the film’s plot, but Baumbach’s ear for dialogue and hard-won emotion keep it chugging right along. The film also heralds Baumbach’s return to shooting on film — in this case, Super 16 mm — after going digital for his last trio of features. And, to hear him tell it, he’s not going back.

At a New York Film Festival press conference this afternoon, Baumbach got honest about his flirtation with digital, and why he’s all about film…again.

“I shot ‘The Squid and the Whale’ on Super 16, and in a kind of different way, »

Noah Baumbach on How Randy Newman's 'Meyerowitz Stories' Score Came to Be

27 September 2017 12:57 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

While The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) puts Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, Grace Van Patten, Candice Bergen and Adam Driver onscreen, the film's writer-director, Noah Baumbach, was incredibly excited to collaborate with a particular someone offscreen: Randy Newman, who provided the score for the upcoming Netflix title.

“It was just a knock-your-socks-off kind of experience,” Baumbach told reporters Wednesday during a New York Film Festival press conference. “Most of it is him [Newman] playing live to the movie, there’s almost no edits. It’s almost like a narrator in some way, another personality.”

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold director Griffin Dunne Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

The Spotlight on Documentary programme at the 55th New York Film Festival has a number of high profile authors in the spotlight, including Gay Talese in Josh Koury and Myles Kane's Voyeur. Griffin Dunne's Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold with interviews with Harrison Ford, David Hare, Anna Wintour, Calvin Trillin, and Vanessa Redgrave (her Sea Sorrow is in the festival with Emma Thompson and Ralph Fiennes), and Rebecca Miller's portrait Arthur Miller: Writer (with Tony Kushner and Mike Nichols commenting on her father's career) are two excellent insider depictions. Aki Kaurismäki's The Other Side Of Hope (starring Sherwan Haji, Sakari Kuosmanen) and Chloé Zhao's The Rider, screening in the Main Slate, round out the four early bird highlights.

Hillary Clinton’s Craziest Pop Culture References in ‘What Happened’: ‘Game of Thrones,’ ‘Star Wars,’ ‘Veep,’ and More

22 September 2017 2:21 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

You can tell a lot about a person by the television they watch and the books they read — even while they reveal their theories as to why they lost a Presidential election.

Clinton’s new memoir, “What Happened,” chronicling her experiences surrounding the 2016 election, is surprisingly candid on a number of levels. For example, regarding her coping mechanisms following the loss of the election, “It wasn’t all yoga and breathing: I also drank my share of chardonnay.”

But even more fascinating are the ways in which she invokes current pop culture. Some of the references feel more forced than others. Some of them are truly bonkers.

This is not a complete list of every reference made, as we omitted some of the religious, spiritual, and historical texts upon which she drew to make her points. Instead, here is all the evidence you need that the Clintons know their way around a TV remote, »

Sibling rivalry culminates in a knockdown brawl between Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller's characters in the new trailer for Noah Baumbach's film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), but the volatility doesn't stop there.

While the previous trailer featured a goofy family sing-along, the new clip takes a few serious turns amid the humor. In the new clip, the New York family headed up by artist Harold Meyerowitz (portrayed by Dustin Hoffman), reunite for his new exhibit. But tensions mount between father and sons (and his seemingly forgotten »

Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Dustin Hoffman are Family in Trailer for Noah Baumbach’s ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’

20 September 2017 7:44 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

In a particularly adept piece of casting, Noah Baumbach has brought together Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Dustin Hoffman as a family in The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected). The latest film from the director of Mistress America and Frances Ha follows the family as they regroup ahead of a celebration of their father’s work as an artist. Also starring Emma Thompson and Elizabeth Marvel, Netflix has now released the full trailer following its Cannes premiere earlier this year.

Adam Sandler has acted in nearly 50 feature films, the majority of which he’s played the lead. It won’t come as any great surprise to learn that The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is amongst the best works of his career, comfortably scaling the lower denominators to reach those sparse upper peaks,” we said in our review. “Director Noah Baumbach draws from the 51-year-old’s main talents as both »

Netflix's Full-Length Trailer for Baumbach's 'The Meyerowitz Stories'

20 September 2017 10:27 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It'll be nice to spend time with dad, I didn't get a lot of time with him growing up." Netflix has debuted the full-length trailer for Noah Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories (New & Selected), which arrives on Netflix next month. This is Baumbach's new familial drama that first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this year. This quaint indie dramedy is about three siblings who reconnect and come together in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father. Dustin Hoffman plays the father, a sculptor who has always been the dominant member of the family. Emma Thompson stars as his wife, and the siblings are played by Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel. I did not care for this film when I saw it in Cannes, but others may still enjoy it. This trailer plays up some of the more absurd, comedic moments. New trailer »

Bening in “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool”: Tiff

Annette Bening’s career spans 30 years and includes four Oscar-nominated performances, so it comes as no surprise that The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has opted to host a retrospective of her renowned body of work. The “20th Century Women” star will discuss her experiences in the industry at a “BAFTA A Life in Pictures” event to be held in London on October 12, The Hollywood Reporter writes.

Cate Blanchett, Viola Davis, and Emma Thompson are among the stars who have been hosted by BAFTA’s “Life in Pictures” series.

“Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool” doesn’t hit theaters until December, but Bening is already considered among the frontrunners to score a Best Actress nod at the upcoming Oscars for playing Hollywood star Gloria Grahame in the film. She scored rave reviews out of Telluride, where the romance made its world premiere.

Bening received Academy Award nominations for her breakout role in “The Grifters” as well as “American Beauty,” “Being Julia,” and “The Kids Are All Right.”

Last year Bening accepted the Career Achievement Award at the Palm Springs International Film Festival and was honored at AFI Fest.

Annette Bening to Receive BAFTA Career Retrospective was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Warner Bros. Signs First-Look Deal With French Company Marvelous Productions (Exclusive)

18 September 2017 11:08 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paris – Warner Bros. has signed a first-look deal with Marvelous Productions, the Paris-based outfit launched at Cannes by former top-level execs at Pathé, Romain Le Grand and Vivien Aslanian and producer Marco Pacchioni.

Under the pact, Warner Bros. will have the opportunity to board any French-language project produced or co-produced by Marvelous Productions. The agreement underscores the Hollywood studio’s aim to increase its footprint in local production with strong partners.

“We have a deep respect for the talent and professionalism of the founders of Marvelous Productions, and we are convinced of their ability to deliver quality films that have a wide appeal,” said Iris Knobloch, president of Warner Bros. France.

Over the last few years, Warners Bros. has backed several French movies, most notably Michel Hazanavicius’s Oscar-winning film “The Artist” (pictured).

Le Grand and Aslanian were at the helm of Pathé for 19 years before exiting in 2016. Together, they produced and distributed many franchise-based French comedies »

‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Review: Matthew Vaughn’s High Energy Sequel Is Blockbuster Overkill

18 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No one is having a better time in Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Golden Circle” than Julianne Moore, which is saying something. The director’s first sequel (no, he didn’t direct “Kick-Ass 2,” yes, “X-Men: First Class” is its own franchise-starter) is as high energy and bonkers as anything he’s made yet. As the film’s primary baddie, nefarious drug kingpin Poppy, Moore gleefully zips her way through every wacky scene, bolstered by an inventive setting that speaks to Vaughn’s intense imagination and the scope of his off-kilter super-spy vision.

Yet, for all that crazy fun, “The Golden Circle” doesn’t go wild enough to break Vaughn’s well-set mold, instead fitting neatly inside his filmography alongside other action-heavy offerings. It’s fun, but it’s blockbuster overkill after an already-crowded summer season.

Picking up soon after the conclusion of 2014’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” the sequel »
