New Matt Damon movie - Stillwater

I just saw this trailer - didn't know Matt Damon had a new movie coming out but he's usually reliable. Stillwater. Has kind of a Taken / Rambo 5 vibe to me.

Definitely reminded of the Knox case upon hearing the premise without recalling her name.

AFAIK neither her dad nor step father are Trump supporters.

It's interesting apparently Trump did promote her innocence during her ordeal (probably out of jingoism as much as anything else) so who knows there might be some 'clever' shuffling of the broader forces at play as interpreted by the film's creatives

It's not surprising it reminds you of that, since the film seems to be based what happened to Amanda Knox, with some creative differences. Knox isn't a happy camper. It brings up a few ethical questions about whether someone's life story belongs to them or whether or not it's open to dramatization whether they like it or not: https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/20 ... long-to-me
If I had more time, I would have written a shorter post

Amanda Knox on Why She Went After ‘Stillwater,’ and Filmmakers’ Responsibility to Truth — Even in Fiction
"I’m not arguing legal arguments. I’m arguing human arguments," says Knox, who feels "Stillwater" refuels conspiratorial suspicions about her that were finally rejected by an Italian court.

There's a minor satisfaction for Knox if she spoils the movie as she might have done reading between the lines.
