Movie Info

Agnieszka Holland's thriller, set on the eve of WWII, sees Hitler's rise to power and Stalin's Soviet propaganda machine pushing their "utopia" to the Western world. Meanwhile an ambitious young journalist, Gareth Jones (James Norton) travels to Moscow to uncover the truth behind the propaganda, but then gets a tip that could expose an international conspiracy, one that could cost him and his informant their lives. Jones goes on a life-or-death journey to uncover the truth behind the façade that would later inspire George Orwell's seminal book Animal Farm.

  • Though it's a shame that "Mr. Jones" is not more cohesive, the remarkable story of Gareth Jones retains its potency.

  • A disordered script cobbles this stirring indictment of Stalin's evil from director Agnieszka Holland. There are flashes of epic filmmaking, but the great movie that might have been remains frustratingly out of reach.

    June 20, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A compelling watch throughout in spite of its rambling feel.

    June 19, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [A] bleak, murky, and instructive film...

    June 19, 2020 | Full Review…
  • At times, Mr. Jones has the gravity and grace to remind us of what an accomplished chronicler of 20th-century horror Agnieszka Holland can be. And at times, it goes off track in ways that sadly undercut both the gravity and the grace.

  • More than anything, "Mr. Jones" is an argument for witnessing and remembrance.
