On Friday, Nov. 7th, 7:45 at Quadra Community Centre, Friday Flicks presents The Railway Man.
The Railway Man recounts the true story of a British soldier who endured life as an indentured labourer on the infamous “Death Railway” between Bangkok and Rangoon.
After a whirlwind courtship, Eric marries his sweetheart Patti, but on their wedding night, he is overtaken by terrible nightmares he refuses to explain. Confused by her husband’s withdrawal, Patti turns to Eric’s friend Finlay and learns that Eric, like thousands of other British soldiers, was captured by the Japanese army and forced to construct what became known as “Death Railway.”
