Matt Damon in 'Stillwater' Is a Man with Everything to Lose at the Virtual KCET Cinema Series on July 29

Support Provided By

Q&A immediately following with award-winning writer and director Tom McCarthy.

An unemployed oil worker in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Bill Baker (Matt Damon) learns that his estranged daughter Allison (Abigail Breslin) has been arrested and charged with murder in France. Eager to prove his worth and regain his daughter's trust, Bill rushes to Marseille. When he takes legal matters into his own hands, he goes up against language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated and unfamiliar legal system. A French woman, Virginie (Camille Cottin), and her eight-year-old daughter Maya, come to his assistance but as the pressure mounts, Bill must decide just how far he's willing to go.

McCarthy shared, "It's Matt's central performance that anchors this film. There are few actors in the world that can bring their full persona and weight to a performance and still disappear in a role so completely. Once Matt was cast, I felt like I clearly understood Bill Baker and the profound journey, for all its complexities and ambiguities, that he was about to take. This film just would not work without him.

Stillwater is a film about human nature, what dictates the decisions we make, and how morality can be corrupted by one’s past, society, and love of family. It speaks to what we perceive to be our moral imperative. It's a story of liberation that addresses the shackles of shame and guilt that keep us rooted to one place. It's a film that addresses our longing to be loved and needed. And it's a film that I was not ready to make until right now."

Immediately following the screening, Deadline's chief film critic Pete Hammond, who can also be seen on KCET's Must See Movies, will moderate a Q&A with award-winning writer and director Tom McCarthy.

The film screens on Thursday, July 29 at 7 p.m. PDT. Only $10 per viewing link. Limited space available.
