First Glance: “On the Rocks”


I’m always up for a Sophia Coppola movie and yesterday brought the first trailer for her new dramedy “On the Rocks”. Like all of her previous works Coppola both writes and directs what is the first film in distributor A24’s multi-year partnership with Apple. It has yet been announced if “On the Rocks” will premiere on Apple’s new streaming platform.

The film stars Rashida Jones as a woman in her late thirties who begins to suspect her husband (Marlon Wayans) is having an affair. She turns to her playboy father played by Bill Murray for wisdom and advice. The two end up as daddy/daughter detectives, tracking her husband across the Big Apple and learning about their relationship in the process.

“On the Rocks” opens this October in theaters and (maybe) in AppleTV+. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.

  1. I saw the trailer yesterday though I wasn’t really feeling anything mainly because I was just tired. Now seeing it again, this looks like it’s a different film of sorts from Sofia yet it does have a lot of the visual traits that she’s known for. I’m eager to see what she does as she is my all-time favorite filmmaker.
