Great Films are rare today.

This film was truly fantastic. A dynamic story do well orchestrated I was glued to it. Hanks a magnificent actor shines out as usual portraying a most unique character in a tumultuous time in history. What I can say about Helena is that she is a marvel. Many young actresses cannot meet up to her as far as I can see. This duo of characters was superbly performed. Best film I have seen in a long long time.

Nice story, wrong location

I enjoyed this film. The growing relationship between the man and the girl is sweet and interesting. The film is somewhat episodic as they experience difficulties on their trip. My big gripe is that the part of Texas they are traveling through looks nothing like this. Many films are made in New Mexico because of financial benefits that Texas doesn't provide. "No Country for old Men", "Hell or High Water", and this film all look great, but "News of the World" was supposed to be in North Texas down through Central East Texas. The Dallas area is rolling black soil grassland with numerous rivers and creeks surrounded by large woods. It's farmland famous for cotton production. It's not desert. The Eastern half of Texas is Wooded with streams. Before cotton, cattle, or oil the first major cash crop to new settlers was lumber. San Antonio is on the Eastern edge of the Hill country, where there are hills separated by valleys with rock bottom, clear running streams, the most scenic part of the state. West Texas is dry desert, but that isn't where this film is supposed to be taking place. From John Ford filming in Monument valley, to Lonesome Dove, Texas is too often depicted unrealistically, geographically. It's annoying.

Only one character is developed

Even Castaway had two characters (Wilson), but the lack of dialogue from the girl gave us almost no insight as to what was going on for her. We only see the Captain's story, and that is a shame. Even The Captain's story isn't really revealed until the very end. It's a good enough Western, but won't move people much.
