While Peter Weir’s The Way Back has yet to screen for critics in Atlanta, I’ve heard nothing but positive things about the film. The Way Back is Weir’s first film in seven years and boasts a strong cast that includes Colin Farrell, Ed Harris, Mark Strong, Jim Sturgess, and Saoirse Ronan. I can’t wait to get a look at the film and now we have seven clips from the flick, which opens next week. Here’s the synopsis:
Inspired by Slavomir Rawicz’s acclaimed book, The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom as well as other real life accounts, six time Oscar nominated director Peter Weir’s (Witness, Master And Commander, & Dead Poet’s Society) The Way Back is a remarkable adventure story chronicling the escape of a small group of multi-national prisoners from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and their epic life affirming journey over thousands of miles across five hostile countries.
