THE RAILWAY MAN

On Blu-ray, DVD and digital platforms from

5th May 2014

Academy Award-winner Colin Firth heads up a stellar cast in this moving war drama, based on the bestselling autobiography of Eric Lomax. Chronicling Lomax’s experiences as a British Army Officer in a Japanese labour camp, THE RAILWAY MAN provides a haunting and inspiring tale of heroism and redemption as it arrives on Blu-ray, DVD and to download from 5th May, 2014 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.

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.

Featuring captivating performances from the outstanding cast, THE RAILWAY MAN is a poignant, extraordinary and deeply affecting drama exploring the after-effects of war and the power of forgiveness.
