“Matt Damon is at the top of his game” Pete Hammond, Deadline

 

Universal City, California, October 5, 2021 A mesmerizing and emotionally powerful suspense film starring Academy Award® winner Matt Damon (Bourne franchise) and directed by Academy Award® winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight), STILLWATER is available to own for the first time on Digital October 12, 2021 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 26, 2021 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. Packed with twists and turns from beginning to end, the “brilliant” (Variety) and suspenseful film follows an oil-rig worker from Stillwater, Oklahoma who will stop at nothing to free his daughter who insists she has been wrongfully convicted and imprisoned in France.

Camille Cottin (“Call My Agent!”) and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine) star alongside Damon in this edge-of-your-seat story about an ordinary father who, as a stranger in Marseilles, must rise to the occasion, unravel a dangerous mystery, and find redemption. Featuring brand-new bonus content not seen in theaters, STILLWATER on Digital, Blu-ray™ and DVD comes with exclusive behind-the-scenes features about the movie’s authentic characters, filming in beautiful Marseilles, France, and director Tom McCarthy’s filmmaking methods, taking audiences deeper into the captivating story. Receiving a standing ovation at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival during its world premiere, STILLWATER is the must-own thriller of the year!

STILLWATER follows Bill Baker (Damon), an American oil-rig roughneck from Oklahoma who travels to Marseilles to visit his estranged daughter (Breslin), in prison for a murder she claims she did not commit. Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system, Bill builds a new life for himself in France as he makes it his personal mission to exonerate his daughter.
