Richard Jewell was an American police officer and security guard. After he discovered a backpack filled with three pipe bombs on the park grounds of the AT&T Center during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Jewell alerted police and helped to evacuate the area before the bomb exploded, saving many people from injury or death. Despite this heroism, he was considered a suspect and endured a “trial by media,” which took a great toll on his personal and professional life.
Directed by Clint Eastwood, this incredible true story is a tribute to a hero. Starring Olivia Wilde, Sam Rockwell, Jon Hamm, Kathy Bates, and Paul Walter Hauser (Late Night), this film is a testament to the perseverance and bravery of ordinary people to make a difference. The world will know is name and the truth.
