In un’intervista a Indiewire Sofia Coppola racconta il suo nuovo film On The Rocks, prodotto dalla A24 per Apple Tv+.
E’ la prima collaborazione trta la piccola casa indie e il colosso di Cupertino.
Il film è interpretato da Bill Murray e Rachida Jones: “Yes, they play father and daughter, and she’s married to Marlon Wayans, a successful businessman who is traveling a lot and has a beautiful assistant. [Rashida’s character] has suspicions. The dad, who’s kind of a sophisticated playboy, gets her paranoid because he’s seeing men through his point of view. It’s sort of the clash between the two generations and her being a young woman and he’s a gentleman of another generation.”
La loro relazione influenzerà la vita di entrambi e i loro rapporti con gli altri: “It’s kind of the clash of how they look at relationships and also how your relationship with your parent affects your relationships in your life. We finished a little while ago. It’s the two of them as a father and daughter sort of on a little adventure to spy on her husband. It’s a lot of them talking about life and men and women over martinis in New York.”
Il film avrebbe dovuto debuttare in sala, magari dopo un passaggio a Cannes. Ma ormai i programmi potrebbero essere diversi. Sulle nuove piattaforme la Coppola ha raccontato: “…I think it’s interesting because you’re so open to, you know, trying different things. I think in that way it’s exciting, but at the same point I don’t really see it as it’s not so much cinema [in its traditional sense], to me it’s a different thing. But I think it’s interesting.”
