The Railway Man

The Railway Man

Based on his best-selling memoir, The film tells the extraordinary and epic 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. Decades later, Lomax 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.

The Railway Man takes its title and plot elements from Eric Lomax's autobiographical book about his tragic involvement in one of WWII's more brutal chapters: the construction of the Burma Railroad (also known as the Death Railroad) by the Imperial Japanese Army in 1942-43 using pressed labor from Asia and Allied POWs. » Read more
