Yea this looks good, but it is gonna be polarizing with the, "whole innocent white man blamed by authorities and media" angle. Right wingers are gonna champion it and hard lefters are gonna denounce its concept as bad timing

Considering Eastwood's own political leanings, this movie itself is a political statement and should be seen as such.

I agree with that but I hope no matter a person's political leaning, they can agree what happened to Jewell was wrong. I just dread this movie being "weaponized" by Trump supporters.

it's shocking how unprecedented it is to have an obese lead actor in a drama

It's good but unpopular opinion: I liked Flags of Our Fathers more.

This screened at the AFI festival is generally getting good notices. Many people calling it's Eastwood's best since Million Dollar Baby (people really need to stop forgetting about Letters from Iwo Jima).

Agree, Letters From Iwo Jima is excellent. My favourite that year.
