From legendary filmmaker Clint Eastwood, American security guard Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) saves the lives of thousands from an exploding bomb at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, but is vilified by journalists who falsely reported that he was a terrorist.
Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant (Sam Rockwell), 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.
Co-starring Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde, RICHARD JEWELL presents a fascinating insight into how the FBI and the media conspired to make a true life hero into a scapegoat in the absence of another suspect.
