Director Tom McCarthy’s newest upcoming film Stillwater has been selected to screen Out of Competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival slated for July.

From the Academy Award-winning filmmaker Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and starring Oscar-winner Matt Damon, Stillwater tells the nuanced story of a father trying to free his daughter (played by Oscar nominee Abigail Breslin) from a French prison, making new connections in Marseilles and navigating a different culture and city.

The Cannes jury this year is led by David Byrne’s American Utopia director Spike Lee. See more about the festival slate here.
