This new film by director Tom McCarthy, starring Matt Damon, is “loosely based” or “directly inspired by” the “Amanda Knox saga,” as Vanity Fair put it in a for-profit article promoting a for-profit film, neither of which I am affiliated with.— Amanda Knox (@amandaknox) July 29, 2021
Amanda Knox has taken issue with the just released Tom McCarthy film Stillwater, which is loosely based on her wrongful conviction case. She says she was not consulted or asked for permission for her story.
The film's synopsis: An American oil-rig roughneck travels to Marseille, France, to visit his estranged daughter, in prison for a murder she claims she didn't commit. Confronted with language barriers, cultural differences and a complicated legal system, he soon builds a new life for himself as he makes it his personal mission to exonerate her.
