With 12 years a slave sold out and American Hussle just somehow not fitting the bill, ‘The Railway Man’ it was.
It’s decent. Strong performances across the board in a true story of war and redemption. It did feel somewhat swamped by an incessant film score and the plot did at times feel a little contrived and so I did have to remind myself that it was in fact based upon a true story (although clearly affected by A little bit of Hollywood licence, naturally!)
It certainly has its moments though, particularly a very emotionally charged ending.
All in all? Well worth a watch.
