- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: An American man tries to prove that his estranged daughter, who's being held in a French prison, didn't kill her lover.
Bill Baker (MATT DAMON) is a laid-off Oklahoma oil industry roughneck who now works odd construction jobs when not flying to Marseille, France to visit his long-estranged daughter, Allison (ABIGAIL BRESLIN), who's in prison for allegedly killing her lover. While staying in a hotel, he ends up meeting theater actress Virginie (CAMILLE COTTIN) and her young daughter Maya (LILOU SIAUVAUD), which comes in handy when he needs someone to translate a letter Allison gave him, written in French and intended for her lawyer.
It turns out, Allison has learned that another person overheard a young man, Akim (IDIR AZOUGLI), state he killed Allison's lover, and the inmate wants her French lawyer to reopen the case. That attorney refuses, so Bill decides to take it upon himself to find the man, all while platonically moving in with Virginie and doing handyman work around her place. As he gets closer to finding Akeem, he ends up putting his safety and future at risk.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Fans of anyone in the cast might have some interest, but beyond that, I can't imagine many younger kids being interested in this.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For language.
