Five years after the Civil War, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Academy Award® winner Tom Hanks) moves from town to town as a non-fiction storyteller, sharing the news from the far reaches of the globe. In the plains of Texas, he crosses paths with a 10-year-old girl taken in by the Kiowa people and raised as one of their own. Kidd agrees to deliver the child where the law says she belongs. As they travel hundreds of miles into the unforgiving wilderness, the two face tremendous challenges of both human and natural forces as they search for a place they can call home.

  • One of my favorite movies ever

    By The Prepper2016
    News of the world is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen the acting is great and the movie deals with so many issues and themes and handles them beautifully the journey of the 2 main characters and the bond they develop is so heartwarming and the things they go through is so emotional I was crying at the end but in a good way luckily the movie has a perfect ending that gives the 2 main characters the peace they deserve I can’t believe the low ratings here with all of the crap that comes out of Hollywood lately news of the world is a rare treat definitely my favorite Tom hanks movie ever If you like the usual superhero action trash than stay away but if you like movies with meaning and emotion than news of the world will definitely not disappoint Highly recommended

    The book was better but aren’t all books! Made me cry. Good story.
  • Too preachy

    By Speelurker
    Comes off as an Ill-informed, historically ignorant, liberal lecture to fly-over country. Became so bad, couldn’t finish it.
  • A long way from Tom’s Best

    By LAFster
    The the 5 star viewers. Just because it’s Tom Hanks doesn’t automatically make it art. It’s slow going with a few good spots. For the most part just slow. A wast of time and money.
  • Loved it!

    By MartaC🌼
    Great story and even better acting. Tom Hanks came thru again and newcomer Helena Zengel did an outstanding job. Look out for more from her. Will definitely buy this one.

    This film is a masterpiece my family has deep Texas roots and I really appreciated this film. I loved watching it with my grandmother Tom Hanks at his best and a very accurate representation of our land. The Best!
