How to watch ‘Moving On’?: Director Paul Weitz is back with his latest directorial effort, titled “Moving On.” The “American Pie” co-director, who has co-directed movies like the Academy Award-nominated “About a Boy” (2002) with his younger brother Chris Weitz is back with another comedy, the genre where he clearly feels at home. Weitz has solo-directed several movies like In Good Company (2004), Grandma (2015), and Fatherhood (2021) as well. He has also worked in the Amazon Prime series Mozart in the Jungle (2014-2018), which he developed, wrote, and directed several episodes.
The plot of Moving On seems pretty exciting on paper. As per the official synopsis, it centers around two estranged former friends who meet at the funeral of one of their former mutual friends. The duo then cooks up a plan for revenge against the widower of their dead friend for what he did to them many years ago.
Moving on premiered at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) back in September 2022. In December 2022, the northern American rights of the movie were acquired by Roadside Attractions with a March 17, 2023 release in motion.
Moving On Cast
The R-rated comedy has a pretty solid cast, which is being headlined by two veteran actresses, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. As a matter of happy coincidence, the same duo also stars as “Grace and Frankie” in the popular Netflix series of the same name. With Fonda and Tomlin starring together, the show’s fanbase is surely going to catch their new movie as well. While Tomlin has previously worked with Weitz in “Grandma,” where she played the titular character, this is Fonda’s first time working with the director.
The dark comedy also stars “A Clockwork Orange” actor Malcolm McDowell, who has previously worked with Weitz in “Mozart in the Jungle.” Another veteran actor Richard Roundtree and “The Shield” actress Catherine Dent are also in the cast.
