Reviews:
"THE RAILWAY MAN is an impressively crafted, skillfully acted, highly absorbing journey into a dark corner of world history." - 04/10/2014 Los Angeles Times


"It begins as a spritely romance, transforms into a nightmarish POW drama, flirts with becoming a revenge fantasy, and ends like a human interest story. Along the way, The Railway Man accumulates some power and insight..." - 04/10/2014 A.V. Club


"[T]he performances are so strong and the ultimate catharsis that occurs is so palpable that it sneaks up on you with an unexpected emotional wallop." - 04/11/2014 RogerEbert.com


"[With] solid performances by Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Stellan Skarsgard, and a handsome cinematic sheen burnishing the shocking, true-life tale of wartime torture and reconciliation..." - 04/17/2014 Washington Post
