  • This film sparks some controversy, as many of the events portrayed did not happen to Gareth Jones. For instance, he did not witness cannibalism or bodies piled on carts. He did not meet George Orwell in real life. Also the famine of the 1930s was widespread in many parts of the Soviet Union, not just Ukraine.
