“There is a bomb in Centennial Park. You have thirty minutes.” The world is first introduced to Richard Jewell as the security guard who reports finding the device at the 1996 Atlanta bombing—his report making him a hero whose swift actions save countless lives. But within days, the law enforcement wannabe becomes the FBI’s number one suspect, vilified by press and public alike, his life ripped apart. Reaching out to independent, anti-establishment attorney Watson Bryant, 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, while keeping Richard from trusting the very people trying to destroy him.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Richard Jewell simplifies the real-life events that inspired it -- yet still proves that Clint Eastwood remains a skilled filmmaker of admirable economy.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Richard Jewell is Clint Eastwood's expertly directed drama based on the true story of the man who discovered a bomb at the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta. Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) saved countless lives but was wrongly pegged as the prime suspect. Expect strong violence, particularly the bombing, which leads to pools of blood, bloody wounds, and other gore. Guns are shown, with some shooting. Language is also mature, with uses of "f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," and more. Characters kiss, and there are a few sexual references and some flirting, as well as a sexy pinup picture in a dorm room. Teens drink in more than one scene, and characters drink in bars and social situations.
