Other features to be present in the segment include David Byrne’s American Utopia, Spike Lee’s filmed version of the exuberant Broadway musical; and The Human Voice, Pedro Almodovar’s first English-language film, adapted from a Jean Cocteau play and starring Tilda Swinton.

On The Rocks, which also features Rashida Jones, is about a young mother Laura, who teams up with her rich, playboy father Felix to investigate her husband (Marlon Wayans) whom she suspects of having an affair.

The film, produced by A24, also stars Jessica Henwick, Jenny Slate and Barbara Bain. It will debut on Apple TV+ in October.

The 2020 New York Film Festival will be held from  17 September to 11 October.
