I hate that Clint Eastwood is conservative, but I love that he's doing movie on Richard Jewell [View all]

I respect Eastwood's talent, even when his wacky support of R's frustrates.

I know many here are too young to remember the story of Richard Jewell and the 1996 Atlanta Centennial Park Olympic bombing (by the same creep who went on to bomb abortion clinics too), but this story is important. Jewell, a "so-called lowly" security guard was blamed for the bombing by the media and demonized, though in reality, he was a hero. One can only wonder how much worse it would have been with today's social media.

I look forward to this movie and I give Clint kudos for making it. Here's a summary:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Jewell_(film)
Richard Jewell is a 2019 American biographical drama film directed and produced by Clint Eastwood and written by Billy Ray, based on the 1997 article "American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell" by Marie Brenner, published in Vanity Fair. The film depicts the Centennial Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia and its aftermath, where security guard Richard Jewell found a bomb and alerted authorities to evacuate, only to later be wrongly accused of having placed it himself. It stars Paul Walter Hauser as Jewell, alongside Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde.

The film had its world premiere at AFI Fest on November 20, 2019. The film is scheduled to be theatrically released in Canada and the United States on December 13, 2019, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
