The Reviews for Stillwater (2021) 720p

Real stories are boring but closer to truthReviewed byrid_1MithuVote: 9/10

Yes many will call this movie boring. This is the story of a real human being. He makes mistakes and things don't add up in the end. Thats what true stories feels like. We always try to save our near and dear ones. Sometimes we are so focused on that we loose our life happening now. We. F...k things up. That is the whole plot. Its a 7.5. Gave 9 to average out bad reviews.

NO MATTER WHAT...!Reviewed bymasonfiskVote: 10/10

Tom McCarthy's (Spotlight/The Visitor) latest stars Oscar winner Matt Damon & Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin in this story of an American father's efforts to get his imprisoned daughter out of a French jail. Damon is definitely a ne'er do well, a former alcoholic working menial jobs to make ends meet, occasionally dining w/his oxygen machine assisted mother. We then see him pack & arrive in France for an extended stay to visit his daughter (she was convicted for killing her former lover after a public fight even though she maintains he innocence) & things start to heat up w/her case (she's served 5 years already) as word has it, the real killer had confessed in certain circles but tracking him down is an issue since he lives in a seemingly untouchable housing project. Damon hoping to make things right (since Breslin's lawyer, played by Anne Le Ny, from The Intouchables, has backed away from the new evidence claiming it heresay) decides to play private eye w/the help of a mother/daughter (played by Camille Cottin/Lilou Siauvaud) team he met at a communal hostel who he ends up staying with (being an ace handyman & his burgeoning relationship w/the daughter) but after a disastrous run-in w/some housing residents (where he's beaten up) after tracking down the wanted party some time passes & in a freak encounter after a soccer game w/the daughter, Damon sees his man & things turn for the good but do they? Loosely based on the real life Amanda Knox case, this film shows the underside of American jingoism in a foreign country where we do things our way & damn the consequences w/an ending where wrongs are righted but the players are clearly gray (or even darker) but hell a happy ending is a happy ending or is it?

If you get the sense you've heard this story before but can't place it...Reviewed bypaul-allaerVote: 6/10

As "Stillwater" (2021 release; 140 min.) opens, we are introduced to Bill Baker, an erstwhile oil rig worker now in between jobs. Baker is flying into Marseille again, for a(nother) 2 week stay there to visit his daughter Allison, who has already spent 5 years in jail for the murder of her girlfriend. Allison swears she is innocent. Meanwhile Baker gets to know his neighbor in the hotel, Virginie and her 9 yr. Old daughter Maya. Virginie actually speaks English, so that is quite helpful. When Baker meets with Allison's lawyer, he gets the news no parent wants to get: the lawyer basically has given up, and Baker is on his own... At this point we are less than 15 min. Into the movie but to tell you more of the plot would spoil your viewing experience. You'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this is the first film from writer-director Tom McCarthy since his Oscar-winning "Spotlight" some 4-5 years ago. With a name like that attached to the film, not to mention the lead star Matt Damon, no slouch himself, I was intrigued by the film. Add Abigail "Little Miss Sunshine" Breslin as Allison, and you have all the necessary elements for a great movie. The movie's title "Stillwater" is quite misleading as in fact about 90% of the movie plays out in sprawling Marseilles. A critical scene in the movie plays out while the local soccer team Olympique Marseille plays a home game at the infamous Velodrome. It is clear that filming is done while an actual game is taking place, this is not staged, and hence adding to the authenticity of the scene. Alas, there are also some other aspects of the movie that do not work so well. Is this a "will she get out of jail" movie? Or is it more a troubled father-daughter relationship movie? Or perhaps yet something else? Also this: as soon as the movie started playing, it felt like I was familiar in a vague sense with this story, and hence I assumed that this was based on a true story. But nothing in the film credits acknowledges this. It didn't take me long afterwards to piece two and two together. The movie is in fact loosely based/a fictionalized version of the real life Amanda Knox story.

"Stillwater" was supposed to be released in theaters in Fall of 2020, but a little thing called COVID-19 had other plans. The movie finally was in theaters last weekend. The Friday early evening screening where I saw this at here in Cincinnati was not attended well, just 5 people (including myself). If you are a fan of Tom McCarthy or Matt Damon, or simply are in the mood for a complex if imperfect drama, I'd readily suggest you check this out, be it in the theater, on VOD, or eventually on DVD/Blu-ray, and draw your own conclusion.
