‘On The Rocks’ mark Sofia and Bill’s first narrative feature film together since “Lost in Translation,” which earned Murray an Oscar nomination for Best Actor and won Coppola the Best Original Screenplay Oscar. The upcoming comedy-drama from A24 and Apple will be available in select cities and on AppleTV+ this October.
A young New York mother (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s happily hitched, but when her husband (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, she begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship. Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.
It just premiered at NYFF the other week and has received mostly glowing reviews thus far!
