About 43 minutes in Richard Jewell, in his bedroom, is on the phone speaking to attorney Watson Bryant regarding Bryant's assistance and possible representation on a book deal. A reflected circle of light from the filming crew passes over the chest, right arm of Paul Walter Hauser and then appears behind him on the wall over the headboard before exiting in the upper left hand corner of the shot.

You know, I actually feel sorry for you guys: when the real bomber does it again, and the country asks, 'where was the FBI?' you're gonna say, 'we were busy getting hair samples from Richard Jewel.'

I always wonder why some directors make crap movies and others make great movies. Clint Eastwood has one of the greatest portfolios of smart, intelligent, interesting and well acted films. From humble beginnings as an actor he has developed into an iconic director. You know going into the theatre that your going to see an artist at work. This story, this movie is what careers are made off. Go see it.
