Richard Jewell: discover the Cineworld Unlimited responses

Screen icon Clint Eastwood returns with new drama Richard Jewell, based on a shocking miscarriage of justice. Impressive newcomer Paul Walter Hauser plays the eponymous Richard, a security guard wrongly implicated in the 1996 Atlanta bombing, and subsequently hounded by both the press and the FBI.

Hauser joins the more seasoned likes of Sam Rockwell, Oscar nominee Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde for another stoic Eastwood movie that examines dignity in the face of duress. This engrossing theme has recently been explored in the likes of American Sniper and Sully: Miracle on the Hudson.

Cineworld Unlimited members got to see the movie in advance last night, and we're here to round up a few of their responses. We'll start with this from Emma@TheMovies.

James Acraman lauds the movie as another Eastwood triumph.

Jessica describes the movie as essential viewing.

Catriona says the movie is important for bringing a shocking true story to the attention of UK and Ireland audiences.

On the other hand, Kyle Snape says the writing, in particular the depiction of Olivia Wilde's journalist character, demanded more subtlety.

Shezza Bezza says the movie will likely evoke strong emotions in viewers.

And Kieran believes the film is flawed, but worth watching for Rockwell's stirring performance as Jewell's lawyer.
