Jerry Lewis Returns as a Jazz Pianist in First Trailer for Indie 'Max Rose'
"They all start out with a slap on the ass, and then we end up jealous old men wishing we had what the other guy's got." Paladin & Lightstream have unveiled the official US trailer for an indie drama called Max Rose, starring the legendary musician-comedian Jerry Lewis as an aging jazz pianist. The trailer says this is Lewis' "most personal role of a lifetime", and it definitely feels that way. After her death, he learns that his wife had another man in her life and tries to find out who he is. Also starring Kevin Pollak, Kerry Bishé, Dean Stockwell, Fred Willard and Claire Bloom. This looks like a very emotional film, with strong performances and more heart than most films. "Sharing love - it's more important that anything." Indeed.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Daniel Noah's Max Rose, direct from YouTube:
When a jazz pianist, Max Rose (Jerry Lewis), makes a discovery after the death of his wife, he begins to believe his sixty-five year marriage was a lie. As he embarks on an exploration of his own past, he is brought face to face with a menagerie of characters from a bygone era. Max Rose is both written and directed by American filmmaker Daniel Noah, of Twelve and I'm From The Future previously. The film first premiered in 2013 at the Cannes Film Festival, but has taken 3 years to finally be released. Paladin and Lightstream Pictures will finally release Max Rose in select theaters starting September 2nd coming up soon, with a nationwide theatrical expansion throughout September and October. Anyone interested in this?

Grew up with JL and Dean martin movies. Good to see him doing film again.

The last thing I remember about him, apart from movies, especially those with Dean Martin as someone said, is some misogynist incident about him. He was insulting women publicly and he was very unpleasant. So, this is interesting film for him to make. Kinda apologizing for what he said ...

I will watch this to see a living legend act while he can still act.
