He walks into crowded rooms filled with people anxious to hear what’s happening in the world. The storyteller brings an engaging spirit to these conversations, a willingness to explain, a commitment to share his curiosity and a sincere desire to keep his audiences informed.

“News of the World” is both a big tale of the American Southwest and a small look at one man’s attempt to carve a life on a broad landscape. This is a movie to see on a big screen, if possible, to savor the beauty of the visuals while carefully listening to the beautifully-crafted words in the script. Yet, no matter the size of the screen, the film offers a chance to learn more about the world we live in today by taking a journey back in time to a moment when people with clear voices could influence many.
