It seems like it's been awhile since Bill Murray has had the lead role in a movie. The last film he really headlined was 2012s Hyde Park on Hudson. Other than that, he's only been taking on a bunch of smaller roles. He's back in comedic action though in a new film called St. Vincent, which looks fantastic! Murray is such an amazing actor, and it's so good to see him in top notch form in this film. The movie also stars Melissa McCarthy, Chris O'Dowd, and Naomi Watts.
The movie starts out with a single mother named Maggie (McCarthy), "who moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine - the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow 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."
St. Vincent will be released in theater on October 24th.
