Based on the remarkable bestselling 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 and his beautiful love interest Patti (Nicole Kidman) discover that the Japanese interpreter responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and set out to confront him, and his haunting past, in this powerful and inspiring tale of heroism, humanity and the redeeming power of love.

After the film we'll go nearby for a snack and a chat. Hope you'll join us.---Lee

    Judging by the ratings our group gave this film and what some members had to say, it received very mixed reviews.

    Gem of a movie. It really had something to say and said it well. The acting was impeccable. Drew you in and kept you along for the whole ride. When it ended, I felt a communal silent energy in the theater.
    No one spoke. We had been touched.

    Psychological dramas have much appeal, and this one used the literay device of stream of consciousness quite interesting. How we all change over the years not only in appearance but mellow in attitude as well.
