American security guard, Richard Jewell, heroically saves thousands of lives from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Olympics, but is unjustly vilified by journalists and the press who falsely report that he was a terrorist. 

“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” 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, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, Jewell staunchly professes his innocence. But Bryant finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers of the FBI, GBI and APD to clear his client’s name, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him. 

★★★★★ – Deadline Hollywood Daily
“Clint Eastwood's remarkable and compelling true story about the false accusations that nearly destroyed Richard Jewell's life features a great cast and a warning for our own times where this sad story has become all too relevant and still possible.” 

★★★★ – Rolling Stone
“Eastwood delivers a riveting take on this true tale … Paul Walter Hauser is perfection as Richard, as is the great Kathy Bates as his loyal mother.”

★★★★ - Observer
“Clint Eastwood arrived at the last minute with Richard Jewell, to show us all how great movies are made.” 

★★★★ - Daily Mirror
"Polished" "a fascinating and gripping account of a real-life hero"

Hollywood Reporter

“Another fine Eastwood film about a man with greatness thrust upon him.”

Variety
“A good story is a good story, and Eastwood knows how to tell a good story.”
