On the Rocks ★★½

On the Rocks is a major let down from director Sofia Coppola. The film is definitely light-hearted, enjoyable and a bit of fun, but this isn’t enough to save it from being one of her worst films yet. Coppola is known for focusing on the lives of the rich, but usually imbues her stories with an emotional centre or approaches significant themes that connects with your own insecurities and experiences. On the Rocks is littered with excessively rich people who lack any relatability. The film itself is entirely devoid of depth thanks to its uncompelling storyline. The film is the first of many to be released from the A24 and Apple TV partnership and honestly, it’s not looking good from here.
