On the Rocks

Plays Friday, October 16 – Tuesday, October 27 at the State

A young New York mother faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father to tail her husband. What follows is a sparkling comic adventure across the city—drawing father and daughter closer together despite one detour after another.  Acclaimed filmmaker Sofia Coppola brings a light touch to this blend of an exuberant love letter to New York, a generation-clash comedy about how we see relationships differently from our parents, and a funny celebration of the complications that bind modern families even as they tie us in crazy knots.

Laura (Rashida Jones) thinks she’s happily hitched, but when her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans) starts logging late hours at the office with a new co-worker, Laura begins to fear the worst.  She turns to the one man she suspects may have insight: her charming, impulsive father Felix (Bill Murray), who insists they investigate the situation. As the two begin prowling New York at night, careening from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship.

96 minutes. Drama/Comedy. R.

Who among us wouldn’t want to go through a life crisis with Bill Murray seated on the other end of the table?

I don’t usually come to Coppola for tidiness, for adorable antics, for a quick look inside the guts of the American cinema and its place on the world stage, but On the Rocks is all that and more.

In the pantheon of perfect Bill Murray roles – “Caddyshack,” “Groundhog Day,” “Lost In Translation” – his smooth-talking character in the new comedy “On The Rocks” ranks as one of the best.
