“There’s a bomb in Centennial Park. You’ve got thirty minutes.” Richard Jewell is known throughout the world as the security man who found the explosive device during a bombing in Atlanta in 1996. His swift actions saved countless lives. But within a few days, Jewell became the FBI’s main suspect and the press and public turned on him. To prove his innocence, he hired the independent, anti-establishment lawyer Watson Bryant. Bryant tried to clear his client’s name, but the FBI and the local authorities proved to be formidable enemies. The film, based on a true story, was directed by none other than Clint Eastwood.

> Richard Jewell will be screened in the Louis Hartlooper Complex or Springhaver from 26 March
