Jonahran Teplitzky's drama The Railway Man tells the true life story of Eric Lomax, a former POW from WWII. Decades after the war, Lomax (played as an older man by Colin Firth) is still haunted by the horrific tortures administered upon him by his captors. He discovers that his main captor is still living, and decides for his own good that he will confront his tormentor. James Irvine plays Lomax during his time as a POW, and Nicole Kidman portrays Lomax's love interest.
