About Mr. Jones

Agnieszka Holland’s thriller, set on the eve of WWII, sees Hitler’s rise to power and Stalin’s Soviet propaganda machine pushing their “utopia” to the Western world. Meanwhile an ambitious young journalist, Gareth Jones (Norton) travels to Moscow to uncover the truth behind the propaganda, but then gets a tip that could expose an international conspiracy, one that could cost him and his informant their lives. Jones goes on a life-or-death journey to uncover the truth behind the façade that would later inspire George Orwell’s seminal book Animal Farm.

MR. JONES features an ensemble cast including Peter Sarsgaard (Jackie, Garden State), James Norton (Little Women, Flatliners) and Vanessa Kirby (“The Crown,” Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw). The film is the theatrical debut of writer Andrea Chalupa and directed by Agnieszka Holland whose films In Darkness, Europa Europa and Bittere Ernte (Angry Harvest) were all nominated for Academy Awards®.

Mr. Jones will be available on Digital June 19th, and On Demand July 3rd.

I wonder if the person who wrote this stuff even saw the movie. It barely speaks of hitler and it entirely about holodomor and how Stalin was not the great leader people thought, how communism was a big lie as the Walter Duranty who supported it

In fact, this article shows that there are still many Walter Durantys around

There is literally nothing in this movie about Hitler except for passing lines. Did you watch this movie?

The movie is far less about Hitler than it is about the damage of communism under Stalin in the Soviet Union and the media being complicit in the cover-up. The communist propaganda essentially paid off journalists, including New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winner Walter Duranty, to write nothing but good things about Stalin's regime, despite the fact that Stalin was taking all the grain from Ukraine while millions of people starved (the Holodomor). Gareth Jones, an independent journalist, managed to get into Ukraine and wrote about the truth, despite massive opposition.
