"Mr. Jones" is a Biography - Drama movie in which we follow the story of a Welsh journalist (Gareth Jones) who travels into the Soviet Union to uncover an international conspiracy in the early 1930s. George Orwell's "Animal Farm" was inspired by him and his journey.

I liked this movie because of the very interesting plot and the very good interpretations made by its cast. It had much of suspense and many scenes which left me speechless. The interpretations of James Norton who played as Gareth Jones and Peter Sarsgaard who played as Walter Duranty were both exceptional. Another interpretation that has to be mentioned was Vanessa Kirby's who played as Ada Brooks and she was very good at it. The direction which was made by Agnieszka Holland was simply amazing and she presented very well the story-line and the incidents that happened.
