You should know writer/director Noah Baumbach from things like Fantastic Mr. Fox or The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. But you probably don’t as a certain Mr. Anderson may have taken most of the limelight.
Baumbach wrote both of those as well as Madagascar 3…randomly.
His new one is The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) and coming to you courtesy of Netflix.
It is billed as the emotional, and comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives.
It also features Emma Thompson, Grace Van Patten, Adam Driver, Candice Bergen, Judd Hirsch, and Rebecca Miller.
I’ll be honest, the thought of Stiller and Sandler in a film together doesn’t exactly thrill me, I’ve not been a huge fan of their recent work, but, this does look different to what they usually do.
