The Way Back

A group of desperate men break out of a Siberian gulag and start walking towards freedom, never realizing that the freedom they seek is more than 4000 miles away. In less talented hands, watching the trials and tribulations theses guys go through as they walk through the barren Russian landscape would have been tedious to the point of tears; under the careful direction of Peter Weir (Witness) , however, it’s absolutely riveting. The cast, lead by strong performances from Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges), do an excellent job.
