St. Vincent is an American comedy-drama film directed and written by Theodore Melfi. The film stars Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and Naomi Watts.
Filming began the first week of July 2013 in Marine Park, Brooklyn, New York City.
St. Vincent (Bill Murray), a drunken, gambling war veteran retiree, gets recruited by his new single-mom neighbor Maggie (Melissa McCarthy) to watch over her undersized 12-year-old son Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Vincent’s ideas of after-school activities involve racetracks and strip clubs, but eventually the mismatched pair begin to help each other grow up.
