Clint Eastwood: 'Richard Jewell', a movie relevant to today
Hollywood teacher Clint Eastwood he said his criminal drama ' Richard Jewell ', which shows how a vulnerable man is framed in a bombing case, is very relevant for today.
Before working on this image, I didn't remember the details too much. I can't think where I was at the time, but I remember when they said they had a guard who found the bomb, who was a hero and then a suspect. I remember that, but I didn't know much about it, and in retrospect I had forgotten. But when I read the article and the script, it seemed like a really interesting topic for today. Eastwood said.
In 'Richard Jewell', Paul Walter Hauser stars as the real-life security guard Richard Jewell whose life turned chaotic after he was listed as a possible suspect in the Olympic Park bombing during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, when I discovered a suspicious abandoned backpack.
Jewell maintained his innocence and was finally cleared by the FBI 88 days later, although his reputation was never restored and his health was damaged. Jewell was never charged and he passed away in 2007. 'Richard Jewell' was released in India on January 3.
When talking about the movie, Eastwood said: Well, because I thought it was very relevant for today. This everyday guy who was receiving the worst treatment of all because they worried that the event would close, and the city had millions of dollars invested in it. Then, they just got ahead and fixed him on this guy who was vulnerable.
