The Weinstein Company has released a new trailer for director Jonathan Teplitzsky’s drama The Railway Man, and it basically gives away the entire movie.  Based on a true story, the film takes place in 1980 England and stars Colin Firth as Eric Lomax, a former British officer and Prisoner of War who was interred by the Japanese in Singapore.  As he suffers from severe psychological trauma in the present, his wife (Nicole Kidman) attempts to find a way to relieve his suffering.  I caught the pic back in September at TIFF and, sadly, it doesn’t really come together.  The flashback sequences featuring Jeremy Irvine as a young Lomax during the war are excellent, but the rest of the film is pretty unremarkable and predictable.  That being said, if you have any desire to see the pic I would discourage you from watching this new domestic trailer, which sequentially runs through almost the entire film.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Railway Man:

Based on his best-selling memoir, The Railway Man tells the extraordinary and epic true story of Eric Lomax, a British Army officer who is tormented as a prisoner of war at a Japanese labour camp during World War II. Decades later, Lomax discovers that the Japanese interpreter he holds responsible for much of his treatment is still alive and sets out to confront him, and his haunting past. Directed by Jonathan Teplitzky, and starring Academy Award-winner Colin Firth, Jeremy Irvine, and Academy Award-winner Nicole Kidman, the film is a powerful tale of survival, love and redemption.
