Richard Jewell (Der Fall Richard Jewell)
USA, 2020 | Dauer: 131min | FSK: 12 | Regie: Clint Eastwood Darsteller: Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell, Olivia Wilde, Kathy Bates

The indefatigable Clint Eastwood's (Unforgiven,Million Dollar Baby,Gran Torino,American Sniper) latest turn in the director's chair tackles the real life story of 1990s security guard Richard Jewell in a captivating biopic with a story of what happens when what is reported as fact obscures the truth. The tautly directed and superbly acted film depicts the July 27 Centennial Olympic Park bombing and its aftermath, as Richard Jewell (Hauser; Tonya) finds a bomb during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, and alerts authorities to evacuate, only to later be wrongly accused of having placed the device himself. Staunchly professing his innocence, Jewell reaches out to independent attorney Watson Bryant (Rockwell; Three Billboards...), who soon finds he is out of his depth as he fights the combined powers to clear his client's name. Hauser's powerhouse performance firms this tale of an American hero robbed of his glory as one of Clint Eastwood's most exceptional efforts from the last decade.
