What the critics are saying:
Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes
"Understated to a fault, The Railway Man transcends its occasionally stodgy pacing with a touching, fact-based story and the quiet chemistry of its stars."
New York Observer
Wrenching, profound and beautifully made, The Railway Man is one of the stunning don’t-miss surprises of the still-young 2014.
Los Angeles Times
The Railway Man is an impressively crafted, skillfully acted, highly absorbing journey into a dark corner of world history.
The movie boasts a tricky structure, but director Jonathan Teplitzky ("Burning Man") does an expert job of sewing together the World War II moments with sequences set in the '80s.
From time to time, the script contextualises a little clumsily...but the playing and pacing are terrific.
San Francisco Chronicle
For such a torment-filled story, the ending is surprisingly satisfying, with an important message that a lesser filmmaker might have telegraphed too much.
