The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) **
An estranged family gathers together in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father.
An exercise in oscillating inconsequential tenderness with enmity. Some of Baumbach’s interludes are delicious in their depiction of the protracted bitterness often found in scholarly families, others are tired examples of similar or congruent themes. Regardless, the cast is consistently fantastic.
