Sofia Coppola, the daughter of one of the most prominent directors of the 1970s and 1980s, Francis Ford Coppola, has brought her exclusive comedy-drama film ‘On The Rocks’ to theatres. From the theatrical release, it is expected to cross huge milestones. The movie premiered in the New York Film Festival on September 22nd, 2020. On October 2nd, it was released in limited theatres and was available to be digitally streamed by Apple TV+ on October 23rd, 2020.
IS DEAN CHEATING ON LAURA?
On The Rocks is a story about a young married woman who suspects her husband is cheating on her. To clarify her doubt, she calls up the one man she thinks will be of great help, her father. Both of them together investigate to find the truth about the husband’s long working hours. A father spying on his daughter’s husband will surely be a very different story from the comedy-drama films we have seen till now.
Laura, the young woman, is played by The Office’s star Rashida Jones. Felix is Laura’s father, who helps her solve the mystery behind her husband, Dean (played by Marlon Wayans). Bill Murray, famous for his voice of the fictional character Garfield, is playing Felix’s role. The relationship between a father and a daughter has been played very well by both the actors.
‘ON THE ROCKS’ FOCUSED ON FATHER-DAUGHTER DUO
Laura and Dean are a happily married couple living with privilege in the city of New York. Laura thinks that her family is at a perfect phase of life with raising two daughters and also having financial satisfaction. Things start to heat up when Dean starts spending longer hours at the office working with his new female co-worker. This makes Laura suspect Dean that he might be cheating on her.
Felix, Laura’s father, is a very charming and impulsive man among the women of his age. Looking at his helpless daughter, he decides to move to New York for a few weeks and help Laura figure out the situation. Bill Murray, known-to-be one of the most famous comedians of his era, has brought the joyful father figure to our screens with brilliant acting and character.
To find the truth about Dean, Felix suggests that they should spy on him during the nights. Laura and Felix spend time together and debate in a flamboyant style that makes it a light movie for the audience. On one side is Laura, who might be ending her family while her father, Felix, not giving a thought about her daughter being divorced, gives the film a comedic and interesting appearance.
BILL AT HIS BEST
On The Rocks is full of comedy between the lead stars Bill and Rashida. Felix keeps on flirting with women wherever he goes and Laura keeping her father under boundaries is an amusing thing to watch.
Sofia Coppola is also known to be a great director like her father, with award-winning movies like The Bling Ring (2013), The Beguiled (2017), and Somewhere (2010). The movie will be premiering soon on Apple TV for the audience to experience this exciting father-daughter duo.
