Mr. Jones

by Agnieszka Holland Hashtag #SpeakingTheTruth

In 1933, charismatic Welsh reporter Gareth Jones sets off for Moscow. Already notorious for an interview with Hitler, it is Stalin’s turn to answer his questions about the reason for Russia’s flourishing economy. Having arrived at the Moscow Hotel Metropol, however, he is fobbed off with prefabricated eulogies about a Soviet utopia like all Western journalists. Jones, ever doubtful of what he is served, digs a little deeper – and ends up in the Ukraine where he is met by true horror and the real reason behind the upswing – but who will believe the unbelievable? Poland’s masterful director Agnieszka Holland delivers this highly-anticipated biopic about the brave reporter who brought the man-made famine Holodomor to the world’s attention.
