Mr Jones (15)

13th March 2020 - 14th March 2020

 

Inspired by her Eastern Ukrainian grandfather, Andrea Chalupa’s first script, made into a fine, bold film by Agnieszka Holland, reveals the extent of Stalin’s genocidal famine.

Gareth Jones, an ambitious and idealistic Welsh journalist, a former government adviser to Lloyd George, decides to travel to Moscow in the 1930s in an attempt to get an interview with Stalin himself. Hearing murmurs of government-induced famine, he travels clandestinely to Ukraine, where he witnesses the atrocities of man-made starvation first-hand. It’s a nightmarish personal journey that ratchets up to shocking revelations that are still not fully appreciated to this day.

Director: Agnieszka Holland
Starring; James Norton, Vanessa Kirby, Peter Sarsgaard
UK, 2019, 1 hour 58 minutes

★★★★ “[Holland] has a real story to tell – a story that isn’t told enough – and a single, compelling and likable character with which to tell it.” Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
