The Railway Man @ Cornerhouse + Social @ Knott Bar

Join us at Cornerhouse on Saturday 11th for a movie and a social...

*** This film is being shown in the smallest screen so buying your ticket in advance is advised ***

The Railway Man - This powerful true story is based on the best-selling memoirs of World War II veteran Eric Lomax. While serving in the British army, Lomax was taken prisoner by Japanese troops, tortured by the army and forced to work as a slave labourer constructing railways. The Railway Man is an inspirational story of his journey towards forgiving his captors for their brutal actions. Starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman.

    Hey I hope everyone enjoyed the movie who went. I did go with a friend, but we felt a bit awkward coming over to a big group so just did our own thing. We thought we would go to the get together afterwards but neither of us actually liked the movie that much so figured meeting up with everyone just to say 'we thought that movie was cr&p' wasn't the best move! :D

    Maybe we'll do better at the next one! :D

    This was a very moving account of a a man's struggle to come to terms with the horrific treatment he received as a Japanese prisoner of war and how through love and compassion he learned to forgive his torturer and heal himself. Excellent acting by Colin Firth and the actor who played the young Eric. I am not so sure Nicole Kidman was a good choice as Eric'swife.

    Just got my ticket and was told that there are 40 seats available for screen 3 at 3:20. We should be ok, unless a large group decides to watch our film at the same time... see you at 3.00!
