In addition to the Academy Award-winning Damon and Oscar-nominated Breslin, ‘Stillwater’ also stars Camille Cottin, Lilou Siauvaud and Deanna DunaganIdir Azougli.

‘Stillwater’ follows Unemployed roughneck Bill Baker (Damon) as he travels from Oklahoma to Marseille, France to visit his estranged daughter Allison (Breslin), who’s imprisoned for a murder she claims she did not commit. Allison seizes on a new tip that could exonerate her, which leads Bill to encourage her legal team to pursue the information.
When Allison’s lawyer feels the tip may not ultimately help overturn her conviction, Bill, who’s eager to regain his daughter’s trust, takes matters into his own hands. However, he’s quickly stymied by language barriers, cultural differences and a complicated legal system. But that changes after he meets French actress Virginie (Cottin) and her eight-year-old daughter. Maya (Siauvaud). Together, the unlikely allies embark on a journey of discovery, truth, love and liberation.
