Richard Jewell is a security guard who finds a bomb in Atlanta’s Centennial Park, and whose swift action to report it saves hundreds of lives. He becomes an instant hero. But not for long. Within just a few days Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) becomes the FBI’s prime suspect, and is vilified by the press and public. Realising he needs help, he calls wildcard attorney Watson Bryant (Sam Rockwell). Out of his depth, Bryant fights to clear his client’s name. A timely tale about twisted truths and the power of establishment.
Also starring Olivia Wilde, Kathy Bates and Jon Hamm.
