Ready for another great Bill Murray performance? Because if early reviews are anything to go by, he delivers just that in writer-director Sofia Coppola’s new dramedy, On the Rocks. In the film – which will screen in select theaters October 2 before releasing to Apple TV+ – Murray is Felix, the sometime-absent playboy father to Rashida Jones’ Laura, who suspects her husband of having an affair and enlists dad to help her get to the bottom of things.
Critics so far are lauding the film from A24 and Apple Original Films as a charmer, with rich character work, plenty of wit, and a loving look at a New York City that will make fans of the Big Apple nostalgic for the pre-pandemic days of cocktail bars and curbside connection. In this exclusive clip, though, we’re off the streets and inside for an intimate moment between Felix and his grandkids, in which he reveals that he might be a bit lax with the rules when he’s playing sitter.
On the Rocks is in select theaters October 2, 2020, and available to stream on Apple TV+ from October 23.
