This movie was an eye opener how the media can quickly ruin an innocent citizens life over a unverified details it almost looks like what we see our news stations doing today except Twitter wasn’t born yet so the news and newspapers were more powerful back than glad this painted the truth Clint Eastwood will be busy making more of these keep it up sir

THE FBI IS CORRUPT AND THE MEDIA IS A WHORE.

More diverting is the increasingly desperate forensics the FBI resorts to in order to build a case against Jewell, though it’s not always clear which tactics are simply thorough, now outdated, or flagrantly illegal. But Richard Jewell has so little to say about its time period or how the culture has shifted that it ends up exposing the relative quaintness of its concerns.

It’s Hauser who carries the film in a rare and unlikely role, that of a presumed loser in life (the man did die just a few years later, at 44) who suffered very unwanted attention — but who, when he needed to, found a way to rise to the occasion.

Thankfully, Eastwood’s sure grasp of this inherently compelling story mostly overcomes his sentimental propensities.
