A Hanks Western - News of the World (2020) - Review

A widowed Civil War veteran agrees to deliver a girl, taken by the Kiowa people years ago, to her aunt and uncle, against her will. They travel hundreds of miles and face grave dangers as they search for a place that either can call home.

Tom Hanks at his finest. Another great movie in his line up of films. Set in the wild west frontier, he becomes the hero again, rescuing a girl raised by Indians after she is found on the side of the road. Determined to get her home, he faces the evil of the times in raiders and corrupt business owners. Along the way he discovers some of his past thought lost and becomes better for it. This is a great story. I highly recommend adding it to your watch list.

Ranking 8/10
