NEWS OF THE WORLD
Director: Paul Greengrass
Starring: Tom Hanks, Helena Zengel, Elizabeth Marvel, Mare Winningham
Director Paul Greengrass first teamed up with Oscar winner Tom Hanks for the true story Captain Phillips in 2013. Their new film News of the World arrive in theaters on Christmas. It’s 1870, five years after the Civil War and Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, played by Tom Hanks, travels town to town delivering news headlines and stories to anyone who gathers around his podium. The effects of the war are still being felt with the divide and racism still at play. Captain Kidd comes across a young girl, named Johanna, lost and abandoned in the plains of Texas. He takes her with him hoping to return her back home. He learns she is of German descent but raised by the Kiowa tribe and doesn’t speak English.
