Can we Get a Sequel?
Tom McCarthy’s Stillwater was heavily anticipated as one of the best movies of all time, and fans loved it. The trailer was good, but very few people expected the movie to be so good—the tale about unconditional love, understanding, and family. An experienced viewer would appreciate the movie, the slow-moving crime drama about a roughneck father who tries to rescue his convicted daughter. He made friends with a single mother with whom he develops a romantic relationship.
The cast did a fantastic job, and the movie becomes inescapable because of the emotional decisions, which made the movie more intriguing. This clever film depicts how inescapable suffering and agony are. The clever and experienced audience enjoys films like Stillwater. However, a casual viewer of films may not prefer a film like this because the slow pace and lack of action would make it boring for them, which closes the path for Stillwater getting a sequel in the mere future.
