"THE RAILWAY MAN"

 

Released in 2014, an Australian film starring Nicole Kidman and Colin Firth.

 

In 1942, Eric Lomax, a 21 year old British signals engineer and railway enthusiast, was one of tens of thousands of British and ANZAC soldiers who became prisoners of war when the Japanese forces overran Singapore.

 

Decades later, he meets a beautiful woman, Patti, on a train journey. They marry quickly, but Eric is soon tormented by his memories and trapped by a code of silence that will destroy him, until the determination of the woman he loves gives him the strength to face and survive the battlefield of his mind.
