Damon plays Bill Baker, an “oil-rig roughneck” from Stillwater, Okla., who must travel to Marseille, France in order to free his estranged daughter Allison (Abigail Breslin, “Little Miss Sunshine”) from prison for a murder she says she didn’t commit.

When exonerating Allison proves no easy task, Bill decides to leave America behind and restart his life in Marseille. While there, he grows close to a French woman (Camille Cottin, “Allied”) and her young daughter, while retaining a singular focus on freeing Allison.


Filmed back in 2019, “Stillwater” is set to hit theaters July 30.
