WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

In 1870, Civil War veteran Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks) travels from town to town delivering the latest news from around the world. During his travels, he encounters a young girl named Johanna (Zengel), who six years prior was taken in by the local Kiowa tribe and raised as one of their own, and who Kidd is now charged with returning to her native family. As the two travel across the country together, eager for a place to call home, the two unlikely travellers share a close bond…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Not a movie about the discontinued newspaper, but instead News of the World sees director Paul Greengrass reunite with Tom Hanks for a Western with gorgeous landscapes, intense action, and quite a lot of heart.
