The Meyerowitz Stories

Absolutely adored this film! So apt at depicting the complexities of family dynamics and the sensitivities we grow up having because of early family experiences. Extremely charming.

The only thing I would say is that there was mostly a focus on the relationship between the brothers and the sons/father. I was so interested in and delighted by Jean, the daughter/sister character who is so subtle but so tender. She is given a spotlight moment and a monologue, yet, I felt that her relational experience to her father and brothers could have been further explored rather than tacked on as if to complete a checklist.
