Eric Lomax is a British Army officer who is captured by the Japanese during WWII and sent to a POW camp, where he is tortured and forced to work on the Thai-Burma Railway. Years later, and still suffering from the psychological trauma, Lomax is persuaded by his wife Patti to find and confront one of his captors. Lomax returns to the scene of his torture and manages to track down his captor from the prison camp in an attempt to let go of a lifetime of bitterness and hate. Based on a true story.
"Firth and Kidman are both up for the challenge, complementing the compelling story with measured and memorable performances."--San Francisco Chronicle.
"It's not easy to play an uncommunicative character in a medium that is all about communication, but nobody does so better than Firth."--Daily Mail (UK)
"It's an inspiring and unforgettable story about cruelty, endurance, courage and making peace with the past."--Rex Reed.
"Lomax found heroism in compassion, and that attitude is what audiences are bound to connect with so deeply here."--Variety.
"An impressively crafted, skillfully acted, highly absorbing journey into a dark corner of world history."--Los Angeles Times.
