2013 (Australia / UK / Switzerland) (Biography, Drama)
Starring: Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Stellan Skarsgård
Director: Jonathan Teplitzky
Based on the remarkable bestselling autobiography, ‘The Railway Man’ tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax (Colin Firth), a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.
Completely engrossing, devastatingly sad, but also incredibly redemptive in spirit, an astounding testament to the power of forgiveness. (2hr 56min)
