New Apple TV+ movie, Sofia Coppola's 'On the Rocks,' will premiere at New York Film Festival according to Variety.

The festival will run from September 17 through October 11 with the new movie set to be part of the spotlight lineup that offers sneak previews and screenings.

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.

The movie will reach Apple TV+ in October and features a great cast including Rashida Jones and Bill Murray. Being written by Sofia Coppola is just the icing on the cake. The last time Murray and Copolla worked together was back in 2003 with the popular "Lost in Translation". We're in for a treat if this movie turns out anywhere near as well as the movie.
