The Railway Man

The Railway Man

The Railway Man will see Colin Firth return to the big screen in the new year to tell this powerful and true story.

The Railway Man is based on the memoir of Eric Lomax, a man who was tormented in a Japanese prisoner of war camp during the Second World War.

Firth will play the older version of Lomax, while Jeremy Irvine will take on the role of the younger Lomax in the film.

A new clip for the film has been released that sees Firth and Nicole Kidman in action:

The Railway Man sees Jonathan Teplitzky, while Frank Cottrell Boyce and Andy Paterson has adapted the memoir into a screenplay.

Teplitzky has been behind movies such as Better Sex and Gettin' Square, but this is his first film since Burning Man back in 2011.

The Railway Man tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who is tortured 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 is released 10th January.
