    The Railway Man

     

    The true story of Eric Lomax horrific experiences as a POW during World War II in "The Railway Man" left me with the same feelings that I encountered when visiting The JEATH Museum in 2011 on the River Kwai. My feelings of disbelief that something so horrific transpired in the beautiful land of Thailand. As I walked through this museum and looked at the pictures, painted by POW's who used hairs from their head to make paint brushes and blood for paint, I was frozen with grief that all that had taken place. I remember thinking then in 2011 that the story of the men that gave their lives had to be told.

     

    I thank the Weinstein Company for bringing this movie to the big screen and Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine and Nicole Kidman for a fine performance of bringing this story to life. The entire cast of actors each and everyone gave a convincing performance.

     

    Anyone who DARES to give this movie a negative review, should first ride the Death Train and visit the museums to learn the history before commenting.

     

    After seeing this movie, I guarantee you'll think twice before you utter another mindless complaint like being stuck in traffic!

     

    This story of war and forgiveness and PTSD is long overdue.
