Apple TV+ Comedy 'On the Rocks' to Premiere at New York Film Festival

Sofia Coppola's upcoming Apple TV+ comedy "On the Rocks" will premiere at next month's 58th New York Film Festival, according to Variety.


"On the Rocks" stars Rashida Jones, Bill Murray, and Marlon Wayans, and tells the story of Laura, a young mother in New York faced with sudden doubts about her marriage.

Laura teams up with her impulsive father Felix, who insists they investigate the situation, leading to an adventure across the city and a generational clash about how people see relationships differently from their parents.

Coppola and Murray last collaborated on 2003's "Lost in Translation," which won Coppola an Academy Award for original screenplay and earned Murray an Oscar nomination for Best Actor.

The festival runs from September 17 through October 11, and the movie will be included in the spotlight lineup, which showcases sneak previews, gala events, screenings with live elements, and other special evenings.

"On the Rocks" hails from independent studio A24 and will debut on ‌Apple TV+‌ in October.

Is Laura adopted, or does she just magically have a father of a different race? I’m all for letting people identify however they want, but I mean, there is such a thing as biology.
Do you find it magical that Rashida Jones’ actual mother was white (Peggy Lipton) and father is black (Quincy Jones)? That’s literally biology. So why strange that her character has a white father?

Macrumours if you want to peak much more interest in Apple TV then investigate that new sci fi series in production. That’s going to be the biggie. I may even hop down to Manchester and see if I can grab some behind the scenes as apparently they’re filming there. Might get you a scoop ;)

I will give it a try. My wife bought the MacBook Air and somehow iTunes knew that and offered me a free year of Apple TV Plus! Used it to watch the Beastie Boys documentary and Greyhound. And since I was in bed because of a fly, yeah really the regular one thanks god, I tried out The Morning Show and finished it on the second day! What a blast! Totally didn't expect that! I thought it would be something lame and boring but man, this is the talented Mr. Ripley meeting Wait Until Dark. I mean less crime but boy the plot is great and tense. I could not stop watching! Things turn so quickly, pokerfaces, backstabbing, what are they going to do next, no don't do this, and so on. What a surprise! :D

Bill Murray must just have one of those faces, because he literally look uninterested in everything he does
It's called deadpan...

Sofia Coppola is uninspired. This totally looks like a slightly different version of Lost in Translation with Bill Murray in the same role. My guess is it's gonna flop.
