Film description



Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Stellan Skarsgard, Jeremy Irvine, Hiroyuki Sanada


Jonathan Teplitzky




Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman star in the powerful true story of a former army officer who tracks down his wartime torturer. After the fall of Singapore in 1942, young Scottish army lieutenant Eric Lomax (Jeremy Irvine) is captured by the Japanese. He's then forced to work on the notorious Thai-Burma railway. This becomes known as the 'Death Railway' because so many Allied prisoners of war die during its construction. Decades later, the adult Lomax (Colin Firth) is still suffering from the psychological trauma of those three and a half years of slave labour. But he meets beautiful Patricia Wallace (Nicole Kidman) on a train and they subsequently marry. With her encouragement, he sets out to track down Takashe Nagase (Hiroyuki Sanada) - the man who so brutally tortured him. Adapted from the late Eric Lomax's bestselling memoir of the same title, this is an extraordinarily moving account of the emotional aftermath of war.



If you have a Cineworld Unlimited card you need to show this at the box office to collect a free ticket. Otherwise please just buy your own ticket in the normal way (if you book online in advance you will get a 10% discount).

London Cinema Meetup hosts a lot of events at Cineworld cinemas (usually for seeing the latest releases, most commonly in the West End). If you like watching films regularly (more than once a month) it might be cheaper to buy a Cineworld Unlimited card for £18.90 a month - this allows you to watch as many films as you like at Cineworld cinemas (including the ones we normally use in the West End, in Shaftesbury Avenue or in Haymarket). It also gives you a 10% discount off food and drink bought in the cinemas, and some local discount offers too. There is a cheaper version of the card for £15.90, but this is not valid for the Cineworld cinemas in the West End. Currently there is an offer of getting 'one free month' if you sign up using the promotion code below:


This code has to be entered in the payments section under "promotions". 
Please check terms and conditions. To obtain a card you can use this website (you will need a digital photo of your face, which will appear on the card to identify you):

Looking forward to seeing you at a meetup soon! :)
