Jerry Lewis' Widower Drama

Lightstream Entertainment has unveiled the first trailer for indie drama Max Rose, which debuted in 2013 at the Cannes Film Festival and represents Jerry Lewis’ first leading role since 1995’s Funny Bones.

The film is written and directed by American filmmaker Daniel Noah (Twelve) and centers on the titular blues-playing widower (Lewis) discovering that his recently-deceased wife (Claire Bloom) had another man in her life and trying to figure out who he is.

Co-starring Kevin Pollak, Kerry Bishé, Illeana Douglas, Dean Stockwell, and Fred Willard, Max Rose opens in New York on September 2 with a nationwide theatrical expansion throughout September and October.
