St. Vincent
Released: 05/12/2014 General release
Theodore Melfi's debut feature casts Bill Murray as a hard-drinking, chain-smoking, devil-may-care gambler who takes on a babysitting role for his neighbour, exposing young Oliver to all sorts of unwholesomeness. Predictably Oliver has as much influence on Vincent as Vincent does on Oliver. A little trite, but still... it's Bill Murray.
