The Railway Man

The post traumatic stress of British soldiers held in Japanese railroad work camps, is explored in The Railway Man. The true story of Eric Lomax and his fellow soldiers, is a war story not often told. The fact that Lomax was able to confront his captor after the war and what happens from there is mind-blowing to me. Wonderful performances all around telling a fascinating story. If you watch this on DVD it is worth watching the making-of documentary. Well done.
