Adapted from the bestselling autobiography by Eric Lomax, 'The Railway Man' tells the story of a British soldier haunted by his experience as a prisoner of war during WWII.
Colin Firth takes the lead as Lt. Eric Lomax, a former prisoner of war scarred by his memories of working on the Thai-Burma Railway (a.k.a. the Death Railway). Many years after the end of the conflict, Lomax is still tortured by these traumatic events and - under the guidance of his wife - he decides to face up to his Japanese tormentor.
'The Railway Man' also stars Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgard.
