Watched this last night and really enjoyed it. Having read the book,I wondered what Hollywood would make of it. They did alter the story a little but only to make the characters more rounded. Tom Hanks is fabulous. Just the right steely character with a soft centre. It made me cry which is always the sign of a good film! Five stars for me

I started a thread about this a couple of weeks ago and everybody who responded said they enjoyed it and what a great actor Tom Hanks is. Glad you enjoyed it too.

I also enjoyed News of the World. Look out for Helena Zengel in System Crasher - a very different film but what an extraordinary young actress she is.

We are coming to the end of modern family which has had us in stitches so thanks fir this recommendation. I start to panic a bit when I know we have to find a new series.

Schitts Creek is worth a look at. All four Prime and Netflix.
