Max Rose will see the return of Jerry Lewis to the big screen for the first time in more than 25 years. Max Rose opens in New York on September 2, in Los Angeles on September 9 with plans to then go nationwide through October.
“The film follows retired jazz pianist Max Rose (Lewis). Though his career wasn’t everything he hoped for, Max always felt like a success because his beautiful, elegant Eva (Claire Broom) was by his side. Then, while going through her effects, he discovers a love note from another man, a shocking revelation that leads him to believe his entire marriage, indeed, his entire life, was built on a lie. Following a period of anger and withdrawal, Max decides to confront Ben (Dean Stockwell) the man who “stole” his wife in the hope that what he learns will provide the answers he so desperately needs.”
