The Railway Man is hoping to put in a strong awards run this winter. We’ve already seen it and we reckon it has a great shot at bagging a few awards. Now the movie has debuted a quintet of character posters, showing off Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine, Nicole Kidman, Stellan Skarsgard and Hiroyuki Sanada in the movie.
It’s certainly a different look for Jeremy Irvine, who looks very different in glasses.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘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 labour 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. A powerful tale of survival, love and redemption, THE RAILWAY MAN stars Academy Award-winners Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman, with Jeremy Irvine and Stellan Skarsgård.’
It reaches UK cinemas on January 1st 2014.
