Richard Jewell

Dir. Clint Eastwood. USA, 2019. 2h 11m. Starring Paul Walter Hauser, Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm, Nina Arianda.

American security guard Richard Jewell saves thousands of lives from a bomb at the 1996 Olympics. However, the press begins to wonder whether he was actually part of the original plot. Paul Walter Hauser is a magnetic lead in Clint Eastwood’s absorbing account of an ordinary man who finds himself at the mercy of unrelenting media speculation.

‘Eastwood’s elegant biopic about the 1996 Olympics security guard turned terror suspect resonates today…[a] cautionary tale for cynical times.’ ★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer

‘Clint Eastwood continues his stellar run…A timely story of broken trust in institutions.’ ★★★★ Mark Asch, Little White Lies
