Richard Jewell Review

A long time has passed since Clint Eastwood directed a movie that wasn’t ostensibly about the quiet, undersung heroes of the American fabric. It’s been nearly a decade since he directed a film that wasn’t, in some way, inspired by true events. (That would be the forgettable 2010 supernatural drama Hereafter.) In the intervening years, Eastwood has directed films about war heroes, savior pilots, a trio of young men stopping a horrific attack from occurring overseas, and now another story of a common hero beleaguered by bureaucracy. Richard Jewell focuses on a man whose heroism was quickly flipped into villainy by a scornful government and media, yet it’s only the characters on the sideline who are of any dramatic interest.

Richard Jewell was an innocent man. Some would even consider him a hero. In 1996, Jewell, working as a security guard at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia, during the 1996 Summer Olympics, discovered a duffel bag loaded with explosives. Jewell was able to clear most of the area before the bomb went off, killing one person and injuring 111 others, and the cost of life could’ve been much higher were it not for his actions. But in the days following the deed, Jewell emerged as the prime suspect, with both the FBI and the media zeroing in on him. Now director Clint Eastwood sets out to tell the story with Richard Jewell.
