On The Rocks movie at Gables Cinema

Starts Friday, October 9
On The Rocks with Bill Murray
The Gables Art Cinema presents Sofia Coppola’s generation-clash comedy and exuberant love letter to New York stars Rashida Jones and Bill Murray as a father-daughter duo. 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. 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. Purchase tickets online.
