St. Vincent
The singular Bill Murray teams with first-time director/screenwriter Ted Melfi in this story of a young boy who develops an unusual friendship with a cantankerous old man.
Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home with her 12-year-old son, Oliver. Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbour, Vincent (Bill Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. Together with a pregnant stripper, Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all of his daily stops – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow up to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart.
