A review of the new movie “On The Rocks”

The weekend before a second lockdown to tackle the coronavirus crisis, I was so keen to enjoy the cinema experience before it was denied to me once more. So I managed to catch “On The Rocks” on the big screen while most people will see it on Apple’s streaming service.

Written and directed by Sofia Coppola, this is a comedy-drama with a hint of Woody Allen since it is set in New York and involves elements of neurotic anxiety. Rashida Jones plays writer Laura who needs to know who to trust: her father Felix (Bill Murray), an inveterate womaniser with a certain charm who is protective of his daughter, or her husband Dean (Marlon Wayans), a hard-working, often-travelling founder of a start-up who is acting suspiciously in relation to a hot colleague.

It is all rather slight and light but it has some appeal and is watchable enough.
