Mr. Jones (15)
Dir: Agnieszka Holland
Cast: James Norton, Vanessa Kirby, Peter Sarsgaard
UK, 2019, 116 mins, English & Welsh dialogue
A compelling period biopic set in 1933 honouring Welsh journalist Gareth Jones, who exposed the Holodomor, a famine caused by Stalin’s agricultural policies in which up to 10 million people died, only to be broadly discredited by his professional peers and murdered before his 30th birthday. A poignant and necessary story that reminds us of the danger of ‘fake news’ and its devastating consequences.
