Matt Damon plays an unemployed oil worker who travels to France to prove his daughter innocent of murder.
Press play to watch the video review:
Damon gives a very well nuanced and stoic performance as a deadbeat kind of dad, and he is ably supported by his castmates and in particular by his French co-star Camille Cottin. The story unfolds slowly but steadily and has enough surprises to keep the suspense going without being overly dramatic. All up, it is a film that feels very genuine and holds your attention throughout.
So how did I score it?
That gives Stillwater an average of 7.6 / 10
