Default Richard Jewell...

Saw it the other day with my wife.

She was going for a Criminal Justice Major when this was happening, and I must admit, I had a touring rock band at the time and wasn't paying a lot of attention to it. But she was.

What a great performance by Paul Walter Hauser, worth the admission price by itself.

Two thumbs up.

He's a local guy (Saginaw MI) that got a break in a strange way.

Saw the Kimmel interview and it was quite endearing.

I was at the 1996 Olympic Games, and was at Centennial Park the night of the explosion. As such, I followed the story very closely. I have yet to see the movie, but it was absolutely horrible what Jewell went through. And I have no doubt that they needed to calm everybody down by saying they caught the suspect, so he was the scapegoat they needed to move the Games along.

Glad you enjoyed it, and I will definitely see it when the holidays are over.
