This is a thoughtful, knotty character study, albeit one nestled inside a polished, and less interesting, action thriller.
Simran Hans, Observer (UK)
From the acclaimed director of SPOTLIGHT Tom McCarthy, STILLWATER follows Bill, an American oil-rig rough neck from Oklahoma, who travels to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter who is in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit.
Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system, Bill makes it his personal mission to exonerate his daughter by taking the law into his own hands.
In the process, he becomes emotionally involved with a local woman and her young daughter and embarks on a personal journey of discovery and a larger sense of belonging in the world.
This is a man who has lost step with his times… but there is something touching about his earnest politeness and also something novel: when was the last time you saw a conservative blue-collar dad in a leading role?
