The Way Back is the critically acclaimed new release from renowned director Peter Weir (Master and Commander, The Truman Show), starring Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, Mark Strong and Saoirse Ronan. Inspired by an incredible true story, this epic film of survival against-the-odds tells the story of a group of seven prisoners who escaped from a Soviet gulag in Stalin-era Russia and walked over 4,000 miles across some of the most unforgiving terrain in the world, crossing the Siberian Arctic, the Gobi desert and the Himalayas before finally arriving in British-ruled India.
The Way Back
An incredibly gripping tale. Excellent performances by all the actors, especially Saoirse Ronan.
Not for everyone
Very long and boring but my kind of film.. It looks great and there's some very good acting but it's disappointing how uninvolving it is emotionally.
Engaging movie. Not 5 stars but definitely worth watching
