In the 2002 version of 'Count of Monte Cristo,' Dantes inscribed on his prison wall, "God will give me justice." I believe this phrase and I'm reminded of it often when I think justice will never be served on this Earth. The scene that probably pissed me off the most was after 88 days (after knowing Jewell was innocent after just a few), the FBI guy went to deliver the official exoneration letter to Jewell and he just had to add that he still thought Jewell was guilty. I don't know if that was Eastwood invoking his poetic license but in any case, the FBI was just as pathetic then as it is now. It's just a shame the media and FBI are so prideful that they would rather allow innocent people to remain tarnished than to admit their mistakes.
Facts don't care about your feelings.
As I was watching that scene I was hoping Jewell or his lawyer was going to reply, ‘And I think you need to find another line of work’.
One thing I wish was covered in the movie was the GBI telling the FBI at some point during the investigation that Jewell wasn’t their man.
Remember when the Obama administration attempted to blame the attack on our consulate, murder of our Ambassador, and security personnel on an "anti-Islamic" video? Who do you think arrested this poor guy (Nakoula Basseley Nakoula), so blame for the terrorist incident could be deflected to him? What FBI agent(s) formed the opinion that Nakoula's release of this video was a criminal act, worthy of charging him???

My wife and I just walked out of the theater and talked about Oscar nominations that won’t happen. Very impressive film that paints the FBI and media with the reputation they deserve. Definitely worth seeing.

Kathy Bates was nominated for Best Supporting actress. She won't win, of course, but I am amazed that the stinking "Academy" could hold their nose and vote for any recognition of this film at all.
