The Railway Man starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman
I feel as if this intense, heartbreaking trailer speaks every necessary word. The film tells the true story of Eric Lomax (Firth), a victim from World War II’s “Death Railway”, who sets out to find those responsible for his torture. Kidman plays his wife, determined to support her troubled husband, suffering still from the devastation he experienced. The Railway Man is adapted from Lomax’s autobiography, published in 1995. Just watching this trailer proves, as they always do, that Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman are two power-house actors with all the gifted thespian gravitas needed to inhabit a character and engage an audience, and it is a gift to see them together. The film also stars Swedish Super Dad Stellan Skarsgård. Yeah, that’s right! Two Mamma Mia Dads together again! This time to work through horrible pain and personal loss instead of singing their feels. Still feel like maybe we should just watch it real quick. Then we’ll watch Moulin Rouge and we’ll remember that Kidman and Firth can do EVERYTHING!
