Travel back in time to the Wild West and follow an American journalist and a lost child in their quest to survive while spreading the word in Texas….

History of world news

In 1870, Captain Kidd (Tom Hanks) traverses the United States in a horse-drawn carriage to read the news to the population. To this end, he always has a collection of the latest newspapers at his disposal. Kidd is a veteran of the American Civil War, which lasted from 1861 to 1865.

In Texas, he unexpectedly finds a missing girl (German actress Helena Sengel) who has been living with a Kiowa Indian tribe for six years after losing her family. That’s why she only speaks the Kiowa language.

But as Kidd discovered, the girl was originally the daughter of German immigrants, and her real name is Johanna Leonberger.

After the death of her parents, Kidd decides to take her and bring her to her German parents to raise her safely.

But the Wild West of the 1870s is literally a very wild place, and not everyone is as benevolent as Captain Kidd. Together, Joanna and Kidd encounter many dangers on their journey through the anarchic territory of Texas….

World Cinema News

Although News of the World was shot in Texas, the filming took place in New Mexico, specifically in the city of Santa Fe and surrounding areas.

According to IMDb, one of the scenes is set in a church at the Bonanza Creek Ranch in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA.

In recent years, New Mexico has become a popular destination for filmmakers because the state subsidizes film production and provides incentives to film companies.

Other notable movies and series shot in New Mexico include We’re the Millers (2013) and Breaking Bad (2008-2016).

Final stop for world news

What I liked about this movie:

I usually like movies and TV series set in a different era, because I love traveling back in time through movies. After all, time travel is the only way to travel that is impossible in real life.

While I’m not the biggest fan of American westerns, I really enjoyed learning about the experiences of (German) immigrants and war veterans like Captain Kidd in 1870.

The 1870s must have been a difficult time in the United States, and as I watched this film, I was glad I didn’t live there at the time.

What I did not like about this movie:.

As a German speaker, I have heard that Johanna’s German parents are not really German. Johanna’s uncle and aunt speak German in the film, but I can hear their foreign accents.

Johanna, on the other hand, is played by an ethnic German actress. Helena Zengel once played a disturbed child in the German film System Crusher (2019, OT: System Spy). In this film, his performance is equally remarkable.

In News of the World, however, she barely speaks German, as her character was raised by the Kiowa Indian tribe, and she speaks mainly Kiowa.

In an interview with a German magazine, Helena stated that she had never heard of Tom Hanks and had not seen any of his previous films before starring with him in News of the World. But then again, she’s only 12….
