Why go out when the US frontier, occult and Billie Eilish are on offer?

From Hanks’ Western debut to Jodorowsky’s mind-bending visions, here’s what to watch this weekend

Tymon Smith

News of the World — Netflix

Tom Hanks makes his Western debut in this solid, if familiar, frontier road-trip drama about a former Confederate soldier making his way through the uncertain post-Civil War landscape of America by reading news stories to the citizens of small towns. During his travels he encounters a young girl whose life has been twice uprooted — once when her parents were killed by Native Americans, then after her adopted tribe is killed by racists. Together this odd pair navigate their way through unforgiving terrain and fend off the unwelcome attention of nefarious scoundrels, on their way to a home they never knew they were looking for until they met each other.
