Director Agnieszka Holland’s award-winning narrative feature captures the curiosity and compassion that must have driven real-life journalist Gareth Jones and it’s the portrayal of this little-known heroic figure by James Norton that will most drive the viewer to connect with the film. Intrepid to the point of danger, Jones uncovered the truth about the Holodomor, the starvation of millions under Stalin’s regime in the early 30s. – Leslie Combemale.
