Matt Damon Fights to Save His Daughter

If I had to cast someone as an “oil-rig roughneck from Oklahoma,” Matt Damon would not necessarily be my first choice. But that’s acting for you! And that’s exactly who Damon plays in Stillwater, the new thriller from Tom McCarthy, the director of the Oscar-winning Spotlight. Damon’s roughneck oil-rigger from Oklahoma travels to France where his daughter (Abigail Breslin) has been arrested for murder. Everyone thinks she did it, so it’s up to Damon’s character to prove she’s innocent.
