The French actress Camille Cottin plays a colorful, lively Virginie in Stillwater. She brings some joy to the character played by Matt Damon at a disoriented moment in Bill’s life.

The Synopsis 

Unemployed roughneck Bill Baker (Academy Award®-winner Matt Damon, “Good Will Hunting”) travels from Oklahoma to Marseille to visit his estranged daughter Allison (Academy Award®-nominee Abigail Breslin, “Little Miss Sunshine”). Imprisoned for a murder she claims she did not commit. Allison seizes on a new tip that could exonerate her and presses Bill to engage her legal team. But Bill, eager to prove his worth and regain his daughters trust, takes matters into his own hands. He is quickly stymied by language barriers, cultural differences, and a complicated legal system—until he meets French actress Virginie (Camille Cottin, “Allied”), mother to eight-year-old Maya (Lilou Siauvaud). Together, these unlikely allies embark on a journey of discovery, truth, love and liberation.

The Parisian actress started her career in theater before moving onto television and film. Her main role came with her participation with Connasse, Princesse Des Coeurs. She is known for other films like Allied and Dumped. Cottin was part of the popular series Call My Agent! on Netflix.
