A Brilliant and Moving Film!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Railway Man [DVD]  (DVD)
My friends and I have seen the film several times - and it improves on second, third viewing. It is profoundly moving, a true story about Eric Lomax and his time as a Japanese prisoner of war, and is also the tale of his torturer. We met Patti Lomax, played sympathetically by Nicole Kidman, and Patti echoes her husband's words - 'Sometime the hating has to stop'. It is a film about extreme pain - and redemption. Jeremy Irivne plays the young Eric Lomax, and together with Colin Firth, they synchronise their acting as to be really and truly believable as the young and the older Eric. I am eagerly waiting for the dvd!
