Finish of the World Information Defined: How Tom Hanks’ Film Reached Its Conclusion
What happened at the end of the world’s news?
Kidd and Johanna arrive at their aunt (Winsome Brown) and uncle (Neil Sandilands). Johanna protests immediately. She doesn’t want to stop here, she wants to continue with Kidd, read the news and get Cent-Ahs (which Johanna calls Groschen). Kidd explains to Johanna’s aunt and uncle how to be patient with Johanna as she is slowly getting used to western civilization again. Her uncle insists that Johanna has to work, and Johanna’s aunt begins to warm up again about what happened to Johanna’s parents and sister.
Kidd leaves and continues to San Antonio. Finally he goes to his wife’s grave and with the help of a lifelong friend, Mr. Branholme (Bill Camp), he can forgive himself for the war, all the bloodshed, and not be there for his wife when she dies. Then he returns to Castroville for Johanna. He tells her that he made a mistake in taking her there. She belongs to him.
