The new True Grit.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book News of the World by Paulette Jiles. The movie stars Tom Hanks. His character, Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd reads the news at various towns in Texas. He comes across a young girl who was orphaned and raised by a Kiowa family. The movie details their life as they travel across Texas post-Civil War to the family that she is to live with. The story demonstrates what home is.

News of the World was a pretty good movie!
Beautiful scenery, good acting and story. They should have left in the deleted scenes and cut the disaster with the wagon! That was pathetic and did nothing for the story.
It was interesting how the captain would read stories to folks. 3 Stars 🌟 🌟🌟

This movie was SO good, I did something I've never done before. I watched all the deleted scenes. At least two of them, should have been left in the movie. And I even watched all the comments by the director, stars, etc. A masterpiece SO well done.

What is not to like? A good man abiding by his own high moral standards in the face of opposing winds. Few can play this role as well as Tom Hanks. Good acting all around. Recommended.

Great book. I recommend reading it before seeing the movie because it is so well-written. Seeing a movie after reading a book can be risky because the movie is usually not the same quality as the book. I'm glad I saw this; strong acting and the story made it worth seeing.
