Podcast: The Meyerowitz Stories, Top 3 Dysfunctional Family Movies – Episode 244

This week’s episode is brought to you by Get your free audiobook and 30-day-free trial today!

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we review Noah Baumbach’s latest film The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), starring Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller. Using that film as inspiration, we also discuss our Top 3 dysfunctional family movies, which happen to feature some of our favorite films of all-time. And finally, we give our thoughts on the new(ish) trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in a special edition of Trailer Talk!

Noah Baumbach is one of the more interesting directors working today, and his films always offer up interesting conversation regardless of how we feel about them. The Meyerowitz Stories continues that trend and was especially fun to talk about given the striking performances of both Ben Stiller and Adam Sandler. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

On that note, check out this week’s show and let us know what you think in the comment section. Thanks for listening and for supporting the InSession Film Podcast!

Top 3 Dysfunctional Family Movies (36:39)
Dysfunctional family movies is a genre of film that covers a lot of ground, so criteria was more important this week than usual. One could argue that all family dramas feature some level of being dysfunctional, but we looked a little deeper at that to highlight films where familial dysfunction is fundamental to those films thematically. That said, what would be your top 3?
