Directed by Clint Eastwood and based on true events, this is a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth. Richard Jewell was the security guard who spotted and reported a suspicious package before the 1996 Atlanta bombing. As a result of Jewell's actions many lives were saved. But within days, he became the FBI's number one suspect. Vilified by press and public alike, his life was ripped apart. He staunchly professed his innocence with the help of independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant. This is the story of his epic fight for justice against the odds. Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) co-stars as Watson Bryant, and Paul Walter Hauser (I, Tonya) is Jewell.
