‘The Railway Man’ Trailer: What Happened to Colin Firth During WWII?
Brad Pitt‘s ‘Fury‘ is not the only WWII drama hitting the silver screen in the near future. Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman star in ‘The Railway Man’ — which premiered at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival — from director Jonathan Teplitzky and tackles the struggles of PTSD.
Based on his best-selling memoir, ‘The Railway Man’ 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 labor 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.
Kidman plays Firth’s wife, who’s trying to help him cope with the emotional trauma that still plagues him by figuring out exactly what happened to him. ‘The Railway Man’ is currently set for release in the UK January 3, 2014. CAA is currently selling the domestic rights to the film.
