Movie Review: Stillwater

StillwaterVery loosely inspired by the Amanda Knox case of an American student convicted of murder while studying abroad. STILLWATER follows its own path for the majority of his screenplay (co-written with a trio of writers). Not only is the action transported from Italy to Marseille, France, but the focus isn’t on the imprisoned young woman here named Allison (Abigail Breslin), but on her single father Bill (Matt Damon). The other main characters are Virginie, a single French woman (Camille Cottin) and her young daughter Maya (Lilou Siauvaud) who befriend and assistant the American as he tries to find the real killer.
In its 2 hour and 20-minute run time was the right length to make a compelling story, that features beautiful cinematography, relatable characters, and a well-crafted story to keep the audience invested from start to finish.

Stillwater is rated R for language.
