'The Railway Man' First International Trailer: Colin Firth Lives for Revenge


The Oscar-winning actor plays a former POW who confronts the man who tortured him during World War II, before realizing that 'some time the hating has to stop.'

"The Railway Man" has shared its first footage through a U.K. trailer. Colin Firth takes center stage in it as he plays an emotional wreck who is haunted by his memories of war, during which he was held captive by Japanese troops.

Nicole Kidman plays his supportive wife, who lets Firth's Eric Lomax seek closure to his painful past. With the help of Stellan Skarsgard's Finlay, Lomax confronts one of his captors, portrayed by "The Last Samurai" actor Hiroyuki Sanada.

Based on a true story of British Army officer Eric Lomax, "The Railway Man" is a powerful tale of survival, love and redemption until he realizes that "some time the hating has to stop." Jonathan Teplitzky directs the drama with the script provided by Frank Cottrell Boyce and Andy Paterson.

It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6, leaving the audience sobbing. The movie has gained mixed reviews with Variety calling it "decidedly old-fashioned" and "dull as ditchwater." Rope of Silicon, on the other hand, said that "the finale becomes the best part of the film, elegantly told and respectful of both the subject and not at all pandering to the audience."

No U.S. release date is set for the movie just yet.
