Complete Storyline and information about Stillwater
Bill Baker (Matt Damon) is a U.S. oil drilling worker from Stillwater, but must travel from rural Oklahoma across the ocean to Marseille, France. There he seeks out his estranged daughter Allison (Abigail Breslin), who is in prison. She is accused of murdering her friend Lina, but she insists she is innocent.
The father then moves permanently to France and must now contend with language barriers, cultural differences and a complicated justice system as he makes it his personal mission to free his daughter. During this time, he befriends Virginie (Camille Cottin) and her 8-year-old daughter Maya (Lilou Siauvaud), while also embarking on a personal journey of discovery as he learns what it means to have his place in the world. But how far is he really willing to go?
Background & Info on Stillwater
The story of American Amanda Knox, who went on trial in Italy in 2007-2015 for the murder of fellow student Meredith Kercher, served as a loose inspiration for Stillwater.
For research, director Tom McCarthy and lead actor Matt Damon went to Oklahoma early in the film to get a better feel for the land and its people, and in particular the “roughnecks” (thuggish drillers).
The thriller Stillwater was filmed on location in Oklahoma and Marseilles in 2019. It was originally scheduled for a November 2020 release, but the Corona pandemic pushed that back. As a result, the drama finally made its world premiere in the summer of 2021 at the Cannes Film Festival. (ES)
