Richard Jewell, 7.1/10, is known for being the security guard who discovered the bagged bomb during the Centennial Olympic ceremony celebrations. However the FBI and media soon painted Richard as the prime suspect.
Some will find this deep dive into a divisive chapter in history a little dull, however Richard Jewell is a man who saved thousands of lives and is vilified by everyone but his mother. Yet Jewell isn’t a common house held name. Depicting how far the press will go to sell a story no matter the implications it may have on an individual. Jewell is an endearing individual whose passion is to protect. So watching the FBI and press attack this man is like watching a puppy being kicked. Played brilliantly by Paul Walter Hauser and accompanied by Sam Rockwell, the two hold the attention of the audience for the entire run time.
Clint Eastwood has directed a remarkable film that sheds light on the resilience of one American hero when the world was against him. To have a film speak the truth on the blatant manipulation of events is grippingly informative whilst installing public credibly back to his name.
