This trailer For Stillwater starring Matt Damon runs deep. The fish out of water dramatic thriller from director Tom McCarthy sees Damon playing a father trying to help his daughter (Abigail Breslin) who has been imprisoned in Marseille for murder. Things get complicated.
This looks right in Damon’s wheelhouse – the type of strong drama that he made his name starring in. McCarthy is coming-off Spotlight – so this is one to look out for.
Stillwater hits US cinemas on 30 July 2021 and then arrives on Irish and UK screens on 6 August 2021.
Stillwater follows Bill, an American oil-rig roughneck from Oklahoma (Matt Damon), who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter (Abigail Breslin), in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit. Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system, Bill builds a new life for himself in France as he makes it his personal mission to exonerate his daughter.
