    Synopsis


    The Railway Man
    Jonahran Teplitzky's drama The Railway Man tells the true life story of Eric Lomax, a former POW from WWII. Decades after the war, Lomax (played as an older man by Colin Firth) is still haunted by the horrific tortures administered upon him by his captors. He discovers that his main captor is still living, and decides for his own good that he will confront his tormentor. James Irvine plays Lomax during his time as a POW, and Nicole Kidman portrays Lomax's love interest. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

      As I said, Railway Man could have had a little more action in it for me but I still thought it was a very well told touching true story about a man who was tortured as a POW during the war and then mentally tortured the rest of his life. It gets very interesting when he decides to go back and get his revenge on the main man responsible for his life time of agony. Over all, it is not a movie I would watch over and over, but I will definitely watch it again some time in the future like I do most of my movies.

      The Railway Man is intense, moving, and touches some sentimental strings. Definitively, it is worth seeing, even if the story is fragmented at times, and the end is somewhat predictable..

      This was a very touching movie that could make a person consider the ability to forgive a healing mechanism.
