Another Adam Sandler movie is debuting on Netflix, but this one ... well, looks promising.
That's because "The Meyerowitz Stories" comes from writer/director Noah Baumbach ("Frances Ha," "The Squid and the Whale"). And like many of his other movies, this one is a family dramedy with nuanced, complicated relationships at the core.
The movie follows three siblings — played by Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel — and their cantankerous artist father (Dustin Hoffman). The teaser doesn't reveal much about the movie's plot, but shows some interesting dynamics, whether it's Stiller slapping Sandler or the three siblings singing at a piano together.
The movie was well-received when it debuted at the Cannes Film Festival, and Sandler himself got some of the best reviews of his career.
"The Meyerowitz Stories" opens in select theaters and begins streaming on Netflix on October 13.
