The Social Hour Team Presents:
Friday Afternoon at the Movies
Monthly Film Series

A Feature Film Discussion of... The Meyerowitz Stories
(1 hour, 52 mins., USA, 2017, available on Netflix)

Welcome to our monthly film discussion series, where we first see the film selected on our own and then get together via Zoom to discuss what we thought about it. So plan to watch The Meyerowitz Stories on Netflix before our discussion group meets on Friday, May 6.

The Meyerowitz Stories is an American comedy-drama film directed and written by Noah Baumbach. The film stars Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Elizabeth Marvel and Emma Thompson, and follows a group of dysfunctional adult siblings trying to live in the shadow of their father. 

Grudges and rivalries abound as three adult siblings converge in New York to contend with their prickly artist father -- and his fading legacy. Dustin Hoffman plays the father, a retired Bard professor of art and sculptor.

Here's what one critic says from Rotten Tomatoes: This very funny movie about a dysfunctional family of artistic types is a lot like some of Woody Allen's best comedies set in New York City.

And another critic: While this episodic film, configured like a short-story collection (think J.D. Salinger's Glass family), is laser-pointer specific, its tensions are universally relatable. And its performances are first-rate.
