Director Jonathan Teplitzky's The Railway Man opens in select theaters today and we've got an exclusive featurette on the building of the Thai-Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway, as depicted in the film.
Based on a remarkable 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 labor camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter he holds responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him, and his haunting past, in this powerful tale of survival, love and redemption.
Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine, Stellan Skarsgard, Sam Reid, Tanroh Ishida and Hiroyuki Sanada co-star.
