ON THE ROCKS is the latest sweet, heartfelt comedy from Oscar-winning writer-director Sofia Coppola, who finds herself re-teaming with her LOST IN TRANSLATION star Bill Murray. Rashida Jones stars as a young New York mother who, when faced with sudden doubts about her marriage, reconnects with her larger-than-life playboy father (Murray) to tail her husband. With Marlon Wayans, Jenny Slate, Jessica Henwick.

“It’s a little zany, a little blue, emotionally jagged, adventurously all over the place.” (Rolling Stone Magazine)

“As with all of Coppola’s pictures, it’s the layering of details that counts, the accretion of sly but not minor observations that come to form the whole, like the stippled strokes of a Seurat painting.” (TIME Magazine)

“Sustaining this kind of antic comedy is no small achievement, but the film never wears out its welcome. Bill Murray is utterly endearing. Sofia Coppola never loses her grip on this bauble of a story and paints a delightful picture of unabashedly affluent New Yorkers.” (Leonard Maltin)
