Clint Eastwood may be getting older, but he certainly isn’t slowing down. His latest film as a director, Richard Jewell, has a lot in common with Sully in that it focuses on another real-life hero.
So who is Richard Jewell? He was the security guard who found and reported a bomb at Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta in 1996 – an incident that became known simply as “The Atlanta Bombing”. While initially hailed as a hero for saving lives, between various authorities and media outlets the tables soon turned, painting Jewell (played here by Paul Walter Hauser) as a terrorist suspect. This engrossing biopic features a knockout cast including Sam Rockwell, Jon Hamm, and the great Kathy Bates in an Oscar-nominated performance as Jewell’s mother.
