Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (Burning Man), THE RAILWAY MAN tells the story of Eric Lomax (Jeremy Irvine, Great Expectations, War Horse), serving in the Second World War when he is captured and held prisoner by the Japanese. Brutally tortured and forced, along with his fellow captives, to build the Thai-Burma Railway, he is left traumatised and uncommunicative for years to come, despite the best efforts of his wife (Nicole Kidman, The Paperboy, Stoker). Many years later, an older Lomax (Colin Firth, The King’s Speech) resolves to track down one of his torturers, Takashi Nagase (Hiroyuki Sanada, 47 Ronin, The Wolverine), hoping to find the answers that will enable him to finally let go of the hatred he has felt throughout his life.
