Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were convicted and later acquitted in the 2007 murder of Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy, where Knox was a student.
“Stillwater” director Tom McCarthy has said that Knox’s case inspired the story.
About the film, Knox tweeted on Thursday: “Is my name mine? my face? What about my life? my story? Why does my name refer to events in which I had no hand? I return to these questions because other people keep taking advantage of my name, face and story without my consent. Recently, the movie #STILLWATER”
Knox said she “would like nothing more than for people to refer to the events in Perugia as ‘the murder of Meredith Kercher by Rudy Guede,’ which would put me as the peripheral person I was supposed to be, Innocent roommate.”
Knox invited McCarthy and Damon to join him on his podcast “Labyrinths” to discuss the events of the film.
Knox said of a turning point in the film, “By removing my innocence, erasing the role of the authorities in my mistaken belief, my lack of total involvement, McCarthy destroyed my image as a guilty and unreliable person.” shored up.”
“I have not been allowed to return to the relative anonymity I had before Perugia,” Knox said. “My only option is as long as others continue to distort my character, or struggle to restore my good reputation that was wrongly destroyed.”
Knox, whose case was a media sensation in Italy, spent 4 years in an Italian prison before being fully acquitted.
