Sofia Coppola really does bring out the best in Bill Murray: the actor’s sweet, melancholic side, that appears in Lost In Translation and even Murray’s Netflix Christmas special, which Coppola directed.
Their next collaboration, On The Rocks is a witty comedy about a father (Murray) and his seemingly happily married daughter (Rashida Jones), who find themselves bonding more than ever when they begin to suspect that her husband may be having an affair.
Coppola’s film will then premiere worldwide on Apple TV+ on Friday October 23—so don’t fret if you are double-booked.

An Apple Original film produced by indie juggernaut A24, the comedy seems more broad and gentle than Coppola’s other, more ethereal and alienated films. Jones and Murray are sure to have plenty of sweet chemistry as they booze it up and, presumably, learn a lil’ more about themselves by spending time with each other.
