Director Clint Eastwood’s biographical drama is based on the true story of Richard Jewell: the American police officer and security guard who thwarted the Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) saved thousands of civilian lives when he found a bomb-filled backpack, but eventually suffered an intense trial by media after he became a suspect. The film also stars Olivia Wilde, Jon Hamm, and Kathy Bates.
