Mr Jones (15)
The extraordinary and powerful story of the real-life Welsh journalist who exposed Stalin's genocidal famine in Soviet Ukraine, which killed almost 10 million people. In 1933, Gareth Jones is an earnest young Welsh journalist who was the first foreign journalist to interview Hitler and he travels to Moscow in an attempt to interview Stalin. He witnesses not only the ravages of a famine wrought by Stalin's agricultural reform but also the Soviet secret service's dogged efforts to ensure that news of the crisis never sees the light of day. Jones's story inspired Orwell's Animal Farm and this is a compelling, powerful, and critically timely film about a crusader determined to reveal the truth in the face of extreme danger.
