CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on July 29th, 2021, reviewing the new film “Stillwater,” featuring Matt Damon. In theaters beginning July 30th.

Damon is a stern and silent Oklahoma oil rigger named Bill who has to travel to Marseille, France, to visit his daughter Allison (Abigail Breslin), who is in prison for a murder against a college roommate she says she didn’t commit. Bill has to become a redneck Columbo to break the case, and stays in Marseille, rooming with a French actress (Camille Cottin) and her daughter Maya (Lilou Siauvaud). His American exceptionalism starts to break down while in France, and in learning about the culture starts to clear the case and his mind.
