Competition: Win ‘The Railway Man’ *closed*

Academy Award winner Colin Firth heads up a stellar cast in moving war drama The Railway Man (2013), based on the bestselling autobiography of Eric Lomax. Chronicling Lomax’s experiences as a British Army Officer in a Japanese labour camp, the film provides a haunting and inspiring tale of heroism and redemption. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Jonathan Teplitzky’s tearjerker this coming Monday (5 May), we have THREE DVD copies of The Railway Man to give away to our readership, courtesy of the stellar team at Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

The Railway Man tells the story of Lomax (Jeremy Irvine), who is serving in the Second World War when he’s captured and held prisoner by the Japanese. Brutally tortured and forced, along with his fellow captives, to build the Thai-Burma Railway, he is left traumatised and uncommunicative for years to come, despite the best efforts of his wife (Nicole Kidman). Many years later, an older Lomax (Firth) resolves to track down one of his torturers, Takashi Nagase (Hiroyuki Sanada), hoping to find the answers that will enable him to finally let go of the hatred he has felt throughout his life. Featuring captivating performances from the outstanding cast, this is a poignant, extraordinary and deeply affecting drama exploring the after-effects of war and the power of forgiveness.
