To celebrate the release of The Railway Man, out in cinemas on January 10th, we are offering the Tesco Books Blog readers the chance to preview the film before anyone else!!
During the Second World War Eric Lomax was forced to work on the notorious Burma-Siam Railway and was tortured by the Japanese for making a crude radio. Left emotionally scarred and unable to form normal relationships, Lomax suffered for years until, with the help of his wife, Patti Lomax, and of the Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture, he came terms with what happened. Fifty years after the terrible events, he was able to meet one of his tormentors.
The Railway Man is a story of innocence betrayed, and of survival and courage in the face of horror.
The film is based upon the book by Erix Lomax and stars an impressive cast including Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman, Jeremy Irvine and Stellan Skarsgard.
