Plot summary

What is Richard Jewell movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Richard Jewell" movie plot summary.

In 1986, Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser) works as an office supply clerk in a small public law firm, where he builds a rapport with attorney Watson Bryant (Sam Rockwell). Jewell leaves the firm to pursue a law enforcement career. At some point Jewell is hired as a sheriff's deputy, but ends up discharged. In early 1996, he's working as a security guard at Piedmont College, but is fired after multiple complaints of acting beyond his jurisdiction. Jewell later moves in with his mother Bobi (Kathy Bates) in Atlanta. In the summer of 1996, he works as a security guard at the Olympic Games, monitoring Centennial Park.
In the early morning of July 27, 1996, after chasing off drunken revelers during a Jack Mack and the Heart Attack concert, Jewell notices a suspicious package beneath a bench, which an explosives expert confirms contains a bomb. The security team, including police officers, FBI agent Tom Shaw, and Jewell's friend Dave Dutchess (Niko Nicotera), are moving concert attendees away from the bomb when it detonates, and Jewell is initially heralded as a hero.
After being contacted by the dean of Piedmont College about his dislike and suspicions of Jewell, at Atlanta's FBI office, Shaw and his team determine that Jewell, as a white, male, "wanna-be" police officer, fits the common profile of perpetrators committing similar crimes, comparing him to others who sought glory and attention by rescuing people from a dangerous situation they created themselves.
Shaw is approached by journalist Kathy Scruggs (Olivia Wilde) of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. Over drinks in a cop bar, Shaw reveals that Jewell is under FBI suspicion. The Constitution publishes Scruggs's story on the front page, disclosing the FBI's interest in Jewell as a possible suspect. Scruggs makes particular note of Jewell's physique, the fact he lives with his mother, and work history to reassure herself that he fits the FBI's profile. The story quickly becomes international news.
