news of the world

My mom recommended this movie and it was pretty good. Not sure how I didn’t hear of it before, but it performed quite poorly at the box office, thanks to being released right before covid.

Tom Hanks was in it. I guess he must be one of my favorite actors, because I’ve seen most of his movies. In the movie he plays a character who brings “News of the World” to the people of Texas, by traveling from town to town and reading newspapers to his audience. While on the road, he comes in contact with a girl who lost her family and was raised by an Indian tribe. The rest of the story is the attempt to reunite her with what remains of her family. But then there’s a twist, of course. Trust me, you will see it coming.

My rating: 3.5/5
