Here’s a clip from from Courtney Howard’s Review: You can find the entire review here.
“Many folks would pay good money to hear Tom Hanks read the phonebook in his compelling, cozy, and comforting timbre. On a superficial level, his work in NEWS OF THE WORLD is as close as we’ll get to that, seeing him play a traveling newsman who reads to townsfolk for a meager wage. While director Paul Greengrass’ film, an adaptation of Paulette Jiles’ novel of the same name, contains deeply layered, stirring themes and resonant character dynamics, it’s the affable actor’s poignant, refined performance that delivers new colors to their complex shading. It also doubles as a return to the sharp, incisive Westerns of classic Hollywood. Greengrass and company have given us all the news that’s fit to film.“
