They are trying to tail her husband (Marlon Wayans) after she begins to suspect he’s having an affair with a new co-worker. As they they go from uptown parties to downtown hotspots, they discover at the heart of their journey lies their own relationship.
It’s the clash of how they look at relationships, and also how your relationship with your parents affects your relationships in your life. – said Coppola for Dazed. It’s a lot of them talking about life, men, and women over martinis in New York. – she added.
On the Rocks was filmed in New York City in 2019, and it is set to be released on Apple TV Plus this October.
