As an individual whose dad incessantly will get in comparison with Invoice Murray, I typically surprise precisely what it could be wish to have Invoice Murray as a dad. Because of this On The Rocks trailer, I can get a style of that; nevertheless, this Invoice Murray character occurs to be a larger-than-life playboy father. So, it’s not a really perfect state of affairs, however Rashida Jones’ character makes one of the best of it, particularly as a result of her husband, portrayed by Marlon Wayans, is perhaps a playboy, too.
A24 joins up with Apple TV+ for this Sofia Coppola-directed film, during which a younger mom in New York worries that her husband’s having an affair. It’s as much as dad to assist her sniff out the reality, and though this setup may sound disturbing, what outcomes is a comical journey that brings dad and daughter to an understanding about their very own relationship. If this sounds harking back to Misplaced In Translation (and I don’t imply that in a skeevy approach, provided that Scarlett Johansson’s character was a lot youthful than Murray’s getting older actor), then in fact that is smart. Nevertheless, Murray is buying and selling Suntory whisky for martinis on this love letter to New York.
From the synopsis:
Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s fortunately hitched, however when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) begins logging late hours on the workplace with a brand new co-worker, Laura begins to concern the worst. She turns to the one man she suspects could have perception: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Invoice Murray), who insists they examine the state of affairs. As the 2 start prowling New York at night time, careening from uptown events to downtown hotspots, they uncover on the coronary heart of their journey lies their very own relationship.
On The Rocks arrives on Apple TV+ (and choose theaters) in October 2020.
