Cannes 2017. Family Matters—Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)”

28 May 2017 9:16 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

When a major artist finally makes it into the Cannes competition slate, despite consistently producing excellent work, the question becomes: what changed? Is it simply belated recognition? Or is the artist somehow pushing themselves in unprecedented ways, creating work deserving of a larger spotlight? Those are questions that one could ask regarding Noah Baumbach, who makes his first appearance at the Cannes Film Festival with The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), despite a filmography that goes back to 1995 with Kicking and Screaming. Oddly enough, the new film—a quiet New York-set drama on various members of the Meyerowitz clan—finds the Manhattan-based director in perfectly comfortable territory, far closer in spirit to his older work than his recent, more adventurous projects with Greta Gerwig. But familiar need not necessarily mean bad. And although it lacks the ambition that one typically associates with a Cannes Competition title (however much or little »

70th Cannes Film Festival Review – The Meyerowitz Stories (2017)

24 May 2017 5:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), 2017.

Directed by Noah Baumbach.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman, Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson, Elizabeth Marvel, and Grace Van Patten.

Synopsis:

The estranged, middle-aged children of a New York artist reconnect with each other in the wake of their father’s illness.

After a spate of juvenile comedies, Adam Sandler has found a nurturing guide in the form of Noah Baumbach. The Greenberg and Margot at the Wedding director serves up prime material for Sandler and the rest of his A-list cast to sink their teeth into, and it’s a joy to watch.

In The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Sandler plays Danny, one-third of the offspring of Dustin Hoffman’s Harold, a New York sculptor and university lecturer. The thrice-divorced Harold is on his latest wife, an eccentric drunk named Maureen (Emma Thompson), and the couple split their time between comfortable homes in the city and countryside. »

Noah Baumbach Heads to Netflix

11 April 2017 6:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Chris here. Consider me outright clamoring for whatever Noah Baumbach does next, even if Mistress America (and for that matter his DePalma doc) wasn't as long ago as it feels like. Time is a slow beast when you're waiting on beloved writer/directors. His next, The Meyerowitz Stories, is his most star-studded and it just got picked up by Netflix.

The film stars Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson (all hippied out to the left), Ben Stiller, and now Netflix mainstay Adam Sandler as a family reuniting in New York to celebrate their artist father. Baumbach's work has been an evolving array of comic tones, so where on his spectrum it will land from bitter pill Margot at the Wedding to the farce of Mistress America is anyone's guess. If nothing else, this could be his largest platform yet - especially if this noteworthy cast is also met with Baumbach's less misanthropic side. »

Why Nicole Kidman Is a Full-Fledged Badass, Even Before ‘Big Little Lies’ — Career Watch

11 April 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Welcome to Career Watch, a vocational checkup of top actors and directors, and those who hope to get there. In this edition we take on Nicole Kidman, who’s having something of a renaissance moment.

Bottom Line: Nicole Kidman is one of our most fearless actresses. She’s an Oscar perennial who constantly chases challenging material, edginess be damned. Yes, her most recent nomination stemmed from a very mild-mannered role as Dev Patel’s mother in the true-life Australian drama “Lion,” but for Kidman’s career it’s her exceptions that prove the rule.

She broadened her fanbase by producing, with Reese Witherspoon, the hugely popular and topical HBO drama series “Big Little Lies,” in which she co-starred as Celeste Wright, an elegant Monterey mom trapped in a sadomasochistic power struggle of spousal abuse with her husband Perry (Alexander Skarsgard). Critics’ raves and audience reaction will likely push Kidman to »

Netflix acquires Noah Baumbach’s 'The Meyerowitz Stories'

10 April 2017 4:12 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Potential awards contender produced by Scott Rudin will get day-and-date theatrical release and worldwide streaming launch in late 2017.

Netflix has pulled off the kind of prestige buy more commonly associated with its streaming rival Amazon Studios, swooping on worldwide rights to Noah Baumbach’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected).

Frequent Netflix collaborator Adam Sandler stars alongside Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel of Homeland and House Of Cards, Grace Van Patten and Emma Thompson.

The plot centres on adult siblings dealing with the influence of their aging father. A producer roster of Scott Rudin, Baumbach, Lila Yacoub and Eli Bush further bolsters the film’s prestige credentials and a day-and-date theatrical and worldwide streaming launch has been earmarked for late 2017.

Noah Baumbach is an important voice in American filmmaking and his films are always highly anticipated around the world,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos, whose team brokered the deal with Iac Films, said.
