Based on the remarkable autobiography, The Railway Man tells the extraordinary true story of Eric Lomax, a British army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II. Lomax endured horrific conditions and savage beatings as he and thousands of others were put to work building the infamous Thailand-Burma Railway, known as the Death Railway. Thousands died during the building of this project.

Lomax survived and decades later he 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.

Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, the film stars Academy Award-winner Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine, and Academy Award-winner Nicole Kidman. The Railway Man will be released in Australia in 2014.
