From the director of Driving Miss Daisy comes a true story of courage, triumph, friendship and strength. Starring five-time Oscar Nominee Glenn Close, Oscar Winner Frances McDormand and Emmy Award Winner Julianna Margulies, this compelling drama reveals the heroic actions of a group of women held prisoner by the Japanese during World War ll. Although they are from different countries, different social strata and speak different languages, the women are forced to find common ground. They unite to form a vocal orchestra and create a life-affirming symphony of human voices. These extraordinary women prove that a song of hope can become a symphony of triumph.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Even with its grueling pageant of torture and abuse at the hands of monstrously inhuman Japanese officers, Road never reaches the heart.
Rotten: A large cast of gifted actress, including Glenn Close and Frances McDormand, is largely wasted in Beresford's honroable but failed effort to pay tribute to a group of disparate women held captive by the Japanese in WWII.
This movie is amazing! It's my second favorite movie, right behind "Titanic" (1997).
