Polish film director Agnieszka Holland’s 2019 film “Mr. Jones” tells the true story of a young freelance reporter from Wales who exposed a genocide in the Soviet Union during the 1930s and nailed The New York Times for covering it up.

Holland’s film opens with a man clattering away on his typewriter in a house near a farm. He begins narrating his story as he continues to type: “Mr. Jones, of the Manor Farm, had locked the hen-houses for the night.” A well-read viewer may recognize this as the opening line of George Orwell’s book “Animal Farm.”
