Truly brilliant, engaging and not predicatable.,
This review is from: The Railway Man [DVD]  (DVD)
The Railway Man is based on a true story - and a moving, unbelievable one which it is.
Colin Firth should have gotten nominated for an Oscar, he portrays hidden pain very well and Nicole Kidman is equally as good.
the ending is truly moving as well.
