Matt Damon stars in this action-drama not-too-loosely based on the Amanda Knox case. When his daughter (Abigail Breslin) is jailed in France for allegedly murdering her girlfriend, dad comes to the rescue. But the real charm of the film (written and directed by Spotlight’s Tom McCarthy) is that it’s calm and deliberate, focusing far more on the fascinating characters than the (frankly, recycled) plot.

4/5 stars
