Knox and her ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito were found guilty of killing Knox’s roommate Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy in 2007, and were later acquitted in an Italian court where Knox studied.
“Still Water” director Tom McCarthy said that Knox’s case inspired the story.
Regarding the film, Knox wrote on Twitter on Thursday: “Does my name belong to me? My face? What about my life? My story? Why does my name refer to an event that I did not participate in? I come back to these questions because other people continue to profit from my name, face, and story without my consent. Recently, the movie #STILLWATER”
Knox said that she “only hopes that people will call the Perugia incident’Rudy Gade murders Meredith Kecher’, which will make me the marginal person I should be, an innocent roommate. .”
Knox also invited McCarthy and Damon to join her podcast “Maze” to discuss events in the movie.
“By fictionalizing my innocence, I did not participate at all, and by eliminating the role of the authorities in my wrong conviction, McCarthy strengthened my image as a guilty and untrustworthy person,” Knox said of a turning point in the film ending.
“I have not been allowed to restore the relative anonymity before Perugia,” Knox said. “My only choice is to sit back and watch others continue to distort my character, or fight to restore my good reputation damaged by mistakes.”
Knox’s case caused a media sensation in Italy. Before being completely innocent, he spent 4 years in an Italian prison.
