Netflix has acquired the worldwide rights to “The Meyerowitz Stories,” the latest film from writer-director Noah Baumbach, Deadline reports. The film stars Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, Elizabeth Marvel and Grace Van Patten. Sandler recently signed a four-picture deal with Netflix, the second such deal between the actor and the streaming giant.

“The Meyerowitz Stories” centers on an estranged family that convenes in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father. Scott Rudin, Baumbach, Lila Yacoub and Eli Bush served as producers.

“The Meyerowitz Stories” will have a limited theaters release before hitting Netflix later this year. The streaming giant is known for mining its viewership data to help with making acquisition decisions, and Baumbach’s 2012 comedy “Frances Ha” is currently available on the service.

“Noah Baumbach is an important voice in American filmmaking and his films are always highly anticipated around the world. Noah is among the filmmakers that we were eager to work with, and I know that film enthusiasts everywhere will be as moved by this film as we were,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be the avenue in which global audiences will be able to see the film.”

Baumbach joins a growing group of auteurs whose films have landed at Netflix, including Martin Scorsese, Bong Joon-ho, and David Michod. The company’s chief streaming rival, Amazon, has lured the likes of Todd Haynes, Yorgos Lanthimos, Barry Jenkins and Richard Linklater.

He's been in critically acclaimed films before so not understanding the big deal. It's a Noah Baumbach film not one of his crappy Happy Madison productions.

Re: Comic Adam Sandler turns tables on critics with Cannes triumph

It was purchased by Netflix. So it'll get there as fast as it can get there.

And "turning the tables"? Sandy Wexler is good! Probably his best since Zohan.

It's no surprise (to me) that Adam Sandler can be really good when cast in the right movie and the right role. Doesn't hurt that it's a Noah Baumbach movie.

I recall Sandler getting good reviews for Reign Over Me and Spanglish.

Pretty good is a stretch from critically acclaimed.

I love Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore but I wouldn't call it critically acclaimed.

I don't think it's a matter of effort. He always puts in the effort. Just his characters don't click with a lot of you guys (okay, only me and Dan0ly seem to enjoy it). You guys just like it when he's cast in the right movie that caters to us movie people.

I wonder if he'll ever do a movie where he gets to play one of his characters, and yet it gets acclaim from us movie people.

Looks decent and I've heard good things but Baumbach has made a career of disappointing me.

I guess since it's Netflix I've really got nothing to lose so I'll give it a shot.
