The Legend is Back In Trailer for Jerry Lewis-Led ‘Max Rose’

4 August 2016 5:26 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Three years after its Cannes debut, the familial drama Max Rose will finally arrive in theaters next month. The film — written and directed by Daniel Noah — is somewhat of a landmark, as it makes the first live-action performance of Jerry Lewis since 1995’s Funny Bones. The legendary actor and comedian stars as a jazz pianist named Max who discovers his wife, Eva, days before her death, was seeing another man during their 65-year marriage. This revelation rattles Max, along with his son (Kevin Pollak) and granddaughter (Kerry Bishé).

Ahead of a release in September, the first trailer and poster have now arrived. The film looks to be a somber and potentially uplifting meditation on loss and lies, life and death as the journey may be an excuse for the now-mourning and confused Max to connect with his children and experience life one final time.

Coming Distractions: Sad Jerry Lewis is sad in the trailer for the widower drama Max Rose

3 August 2016 4:32 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s been 21 years since Jerry Lewis last starred in a film, 1995’s British stage show dramedy Funny Bones. Earlier this year, it was announced that he’d be briefly coming back to acting, appearing in an upcoming Nicolas Cage movie as Cage’s father, presumably to provide the secret origin of the Face/Off star’s tendency for the manic mug. But before that, we’ve got a trailer for another starring role from the 90-year-old comedy legend and would-be Holocaust clown, with Lightstream Entertainment releasing a promo today for Lewis’ melodramatic Max Rose.

Centering on Lewis as the titular blues-playing widower, who discovers that his wife of 65 years might have been unfaithful, the film was actually finished three years ago, and played at Cannes. This long of a pause between completion and release isn’t usually a good sign for a film’s success. (That ...
