The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing, his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI's number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, and his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence.
"Another fine Eastwood film about a man with greatness thrust upon him."--Hollywood Reporter.
"A good story is a good story, and Eastwood knows how to tell a good story."--Variety.

Solid movie about the hero who found a bomb at the 1996 Summer Olympics. The cast is great, but I hate Olivia Wilde's character. This is a good watch.

If you don't know the true story behind this, don't spoiler it. Tense, emotional and another great film directed by Clint Eastwood, and superbly acted by Paul Walter Hauser and Sam Rockwell.

What a compelling story Clint tells about Richard Jewell. The FBI in his case were so corrupt, and went on a "fish story" told by a former employer of Richards. Because of the fish tale, Richard was automatically guilty and the FBI tried and tried so many illegal ways to get Richard to confess. Richards lawyer was a God send and Richards mother pulls at your heart strings. It is a shame Richard is not alive to see this story told. He would be so proud!

What a story. If you think the FBI became corrupt under comey and the obama crowd, think again. These guys were doing the same think peter Strzok was doing in the 80's i.e. 60 years ago.

Now for the rest of the story. Clint Eastwood really made the story come alive. Well worth watching.

Nadya Light: Where I come from, when the government says someone's guilty, it's how you know they're innocent.
