'Stillwater': How the film connects to the Amanda Knox case

Director Tom McCarthy and Abigail Breslin discuss the film's controversial links to the Amanda Knox story.

Stillwater follows Bill, an American oil-rig roughneck from Oklahoma (Damon), who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter (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.

Stillwater will open only in UK cinemas 6 August, 2021.
