News of the World

The movie News Of the World is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Paulette Jiles.  It is set in the days following the Civil War. The film charts the unlikely friendship between Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Tom Hanks), an earlier precursor to today’s newscasters, and the 10-year-old girl he is tasked with bringing to her relatives. Kidd makes his living traveling from town to town, reading the latest newspaper to the largely illiterate locals. The girl spent her childhood living with the Kiowa Indian tribe after she was kidnapped and her family was murdered. Kidd is a widower with absent ties to his grown daughter, and he begins to feel a parental bond with the girl. Together, they battle the elements and a band of criminals who seek to kidnap the young girl.
