Variety reports the upcoming Apple TV+ comedy “On the Rocks” will premiere at next month’s 58th New York Film Festival. The Sofia Coppola film stars Rashida Jones, Bill Murray, and Marlon Wayans.
A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city – drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another.
Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (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.
Coppola and Murray last worked together on 2003’s “Lost in Translation,” for which Coppola scored an Oscar for original screenplay, while Murray earned an Academy Award nomination in the Best Actor category.
The 58th New York Film Festival runs from September 17 through October 11. “On the Rocks,” which is a production of independent studio A24 will be included in the festival’s spotlight lineup.
The film’s online premiere is scheduled for October on Apple TV+.
