Matt Damon had a moment actors can only wish for.
During the premiere of “Stillwater” at the Cannes Film Festival, the movie was so well received that the audience was on their feet for five minutes.
“Stillwater” is about a father (Damon) who heads from Oklahoma to France to help his estranged daughter (Abigail Breslin) prove her innocence after she is put in jail for murder.
The movie also stars Camille Cottin, and Lilou Siauvaud and is directed by Tom McCarthy.
As the premiere at the film festival wrapped, the audience took part in a five minute ovation which made Damon emotional.
