News of the World with Tom Hanks is a western you can watch from the comfort of your couch if you don’t want to travel to the movie theater. This is about a former civil war captain who goes through Texas reading the news of the world from the newspaper. He meets an orphan who he then must help get back to whatever family she has left. While it’s a fascinating look at what life was like back then, Adam says it does move at a slower pace. He gives this PG-13 a B.
