Harold Meyerowitz (Dustin Hoffman), the patriarch in THE MEYEROWITZ STORIES (NEW AND SELECTED), is a sculptor who never met with the artistic or financial success he believed he deserved. The fact that he taught at a fine university for more than three decades doesn’t salve his wounded ego. His three children from various marriages, Danny (Adam Sandler), Jean (Elizabeth Marvel), and Matthew (Ben Stiller), are still struggling with the effects of Harold’s parenting, as well as his arrogance, rage, and jealousy of old friends. Structured as “chapters” in the film, the action shows the family meeting in New York City and its environs over a period of several months. They face illness, old resentments, and truths about their own strengths and inadequacies, as well as the certainty of their father’s mortality.
