Starting on October 9, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Cinema Art Theater will present “On the Rocks,” a witty adventure comedy that follows a father and daughter as they track her suspicious spouse. A young mother (played by Rashida Jones) faced with sudden doubts about her marriage teams up with her larger-than-life playboy father (played by Bill Murray) to tail her husband (played by Marlan Wayans). 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. [2020, US, 96 min, Rated: R].
Alci Rengifo of “Entertainment Voice” pens “This is a wonderful film about how the biggest dramas in our lives can come from the most common relations and moments.” Adam Graham of the “Detroit News” says, “Like a strong drink, it sneaks up on you.”
