Set in Texas in the post-Civil War era, News of the World follows Tom Hanks as Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd, a veteran who comes across a 10-year-old girl (Helena Zengel) taken by the Kiowa tribe, who he resolves to return to her family. The novel by Paulette Jiles, turned film is a story of survival and humanity with a message Hanks says can be applied to our current day struggles.
“His real message is if we want to, we will be alright,” said the seasoned actor, “Let me tell you some of the things we have going on in the world that will add perspective to our individual tough times…and maybe when we come out of it, we might just learn that we are luckier than we think we are.”
