The Meyerowitz Stories

7:30 PM, March 23, 2018

The Meyerowitz Stories is a family drama in which three grown siblings, played by Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller and Elizabeth Marvel, gather in New York for a Bard College retrospective of their elderly father, a long unappreciated sculptor played by Dustin Hoffman. The father’s entrenched narcissism interacting with each of the siblings’ particular sense of failure and injustice provides a sophisticated, brilliantly acted and compulsively watchable film.
