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

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is the emotional, and comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed, sculptor father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives. The Meyerowitz Stories is both written and directed by acclaimed American indie filmmaker Noah Baumbach, director of the films Kicking and Screaming, Mr. Jealousy, The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, Greenberg, Frances Ha, While We're Young, Mistress America, and De Palma previously. This first premiered in competition at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. Netflix will release Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) in select theaters + streaming online starting October 13th this fall. Who wants to see this film?

I haven't liked a Noah Baumbauch film yet, and I doubt I'll like this one. His style isn't my thing. I mean, what is he doing? Religiously watching Wes Anderson's "The Royal Tenenbaums" and trying to "crack the code" on how he made that one movie work? "I know I can do it... I just need the right actors, the music, some family drama coupled with dry wit. I am so close to figuring out his code. I just need to crack it! Then my movies will have the right tone!" Also, somebody needs to tell the person who cut this trailer to turn The Kinks' track down. There were parts of dialogue with singing going on in the background and it was distracting and hard to hear.

I liked that. There are traces of all that. Although, I never gave too much thought about his (Baumbach's) films. But yeah, like he's trying to do something already done ...

I don't know if that's going to be good, but it picked my interest. What really worries me is that I might watch a film with Adam Sandler. After a very, very long time ...

Undeniable cast. But I just don't care for Bambach's direction. Maybe I will check it out. That cast though!

Yeah, this seems like it's trying to harness the magic of Wes Anderson. I....don't think I'm on board with it. Maybe if I can't find anything else on Netflix...

No it doesn't. Besides, him and Anderson have similar writing styles, hence Life Aquatic and Fantastic Mr. Fox. Baumbach is more grounded. Wes Anderson is more dreamy

Exactly. Similar, but not the same. This seems to be Noah Baumbuach's version of the Royal Tenenbaums.
