Security guard Richard Jewell is an instant hero after foiling a bomb attack at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, but his life becomes a nightmare when the FBI leaks to the media that he is a suspect in the case.
Based on the true story of Richard Jewell, a security guard who discovered a bomb and saved many lives at a concert at Centennial Olympic Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia. He was seen as a hero by many and a suspect by the FBI and press.
During the press conference towards the end of the film, Watson Bryant refers to Bobi as the 113th victim of the Olympic Centennial Park bombing. In actuality 2 people were killed and 111 people were injured in the bombing making her (if anything) the 114th victim. See more »

Upsetting but excellent.
Even as a former prosecutor I would have liked to arrest the FBI and media people who ruined Richard Jewell's reputation, life.I wish at the end the movie clarified how he won some settlements against the offending newspaper and others. Clint Eastwood is truly amazing as an actor and a director.
