News of the World (out Jan 28) is set in Texas 1870 and follows a former Confederate Army captain (Tom Hanks) who now makes a living reading newspaper stories in town halls to those with “10 cents and the time to hear it.” Tom Hanks is terrific, 12-year-old newcomer Helena Zengel is unforgettable, and director Paul Greengrass excels in capturing 1870s America. Grade: A-.
