"The dynamics of family, the connections that do and do not bind people together, have long been a preoccupation for filmmaker Noah Baumbach," writes Mark Olsen. "After exploring them in films such as The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, While We're Young, and Mistress America, Baumbach pushes further into the unknown territories of someone else's family in his latest, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)."

"The relationships that simultaneously tie the Meyorwitz family together while also tearing them apart are complex, yet entirely relatable," reports Jon Fusco.  "One of Baumbach's goals in the film was to tell 'a hopeful story about how parents define things for children.'

I just felt, with this family, art took the place of religion.'" To read the full article, click here.

"What brings the family together to lick their emotional wounds--and maybe heal a few in the process--should be left for you to discover," writes Peter Travers. "What's clear by now is that Baumbach is a master of family dynamics whose withering wit is tempered here by a warmth that makes the film as moving as it is brilliantly comic."
