Check out this first clip from writer-director Daniel Noah’s “Max Rose,” which premieres at Cannes on May 23 and marks the big-screen return of legendary comedian Jerry Lewis. The film centers on an octogenarian jazz pianist (Lewis) who discovers an unsettling secret upon his wife’s death.
87-year-old Max Rose (JERRY LEWIS) is a jazz pianist who had
put his professional ambitions aside for the sake of his marriage, his life’s
passion. But when his wife Eva dies suddenly, Max discovers something troubling
amongst her private possessions – an old compact with a very personal note from
another man. To add to his grief, Max
must grapple with the possibility that his 65-year marriage might have been
built on a lie. In quest of peace, Max seeks out new meaning in what should be
his tranquil autumn days and finds comfort from the friendships he develops
with his fellow widowers. Just as he manages to get his life back on track, he
finally learns the surprising truth about his wife and his life.
