Located in Texas after the Civil War, ‘New of Awesome World‘, highlights To M Hanks as Captain Kidd, a former Confederate officer and now a traveling artist who travels from town to town reading newspaper articles to people hungry for national and international news.
When Kidd he meets the young woman Johanna (Helena Zengel) along the way, she finds out that she has been raised by the Kiowa Nation since her family was murdered six years earlier.
And so Kidd sets out on an epic journey south to reunite Johanna with her aunt and uncle, only to find that Johanna is determined to reunite the Kiowa people she believes are her true family.
Adapted by Luke Davies and Paul Greengrass from Paulette Jiles’ novel, edited by Greengrass, “Big World News” is a neo-Westerner with a fascinating backdrop: Kidd and Johanna negotiate a poverty-stricken Wild West that seethes from Confederate rage against what they perceive as a Yankee occupation.
Meanwhile, in the prairies, the last remnants of the Kiowa Nation are still at large, preparing for their final battle against the white invader.
Tom Hanks is aptly described as the Avuncular Kidd, a man who mindlessly assumes that civilization – that is, being raised like an American child is best for Johanna.
The film functions as a sort of sequel to The Searchers (Paul Greengrass even pays homage to the classic shot in which John Wayne’s fanatic Indian killer Ethan Edwards appears framed in the doorway towards the end of that film), with the hero forced to rethink his acceptance of cultural norms, and in particular those of white supremacy imposed by violence and massacre.
The director of photography Dariusz Wolski makes excellent use of the austere lunar landscape, Helena Zengel provides excellent support, and in addition to a couple of improbable twists or two, Greengrass delivers a gritty, cuddly, and timely western. Currently, “Las Noticias del Gran Mundo” is available on the most famous streaming platform known as Netflix.
