Movie Preview: Russian treachery and hatred for Ukranians under Stalin, and only “Mr. Jones” is on the story

The only thing new under the sun is the history we’ve forgotten.

Only the names of the tyrants and their treasonous stooges change.

“Mr. Jones” is a 1930s journalistic thriller from Agnieszka Holland (“Olivier, Olivier,” “Europa Europa”) that stars James Norton, Vanessa Kirby, Peter Sarsgaard and Kenneth Cranham and starts rolling out this fall in the former Eastern Bloc, in the West later. Because Poland (Oct. 25 opening) is more tuned in to what happened then and what’s going on now than the rest of us.
