This crime drama based on a true story is directed by Clint Eastwood and produced by Leonardo DiCaprio among others. It’s about a peculiar security guard who finds a bomb at the 1996 Atlanta summer Olympics moments before it exploded. But while first hailed as a hero, the authorities quickly suspect him of being behind the bomb. Just like Eastwood’s other creation, Sully: Miracle on the Hudson, Richard Jewell is a simple story that if it wasn’t for excellent directing, would not be enough to make a movie out of. But great performances and a great script make this movie not only worthwhile but a timely comment on the trustworthiness of law enforcement.
What an emotional roller-coaster for Richard Jewel, propelled by yet another perfect adaptation from Clint Eastwood. Great script, great directing, and acting. No gaps or slowness, just good cinema.
