The Way Back new trailer online

TheWayBack.jpg Peter Weir brings a wealth of film-making experience to the screen and some cracking films, for me stand out moments are Picnic at Hanging Rock, Gallipoli, Witness, Dead Poets Society, Fearless and The Truman Show, however there are many more notable films to his directorial career.

Now he's responsible for The Way Back, a film about the true story of a group of prisoners in a Siberian prison camp who escape and begin a seemingly impossible trek to freedom. It's not just the director or the scope of this story that's attractive it's the mix of talent up front, Ed Harris, Mark Strong, Colin Farrell, Saoirse Ronan, and Jim Sturgess.

The story of The Way Back is based on actual events at the prison camp in 1940 and comes from the novel by Slavomir Rawicz, which Peter Weir adapted, called The Long Walk (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com).

It seems almost unbelievable that this is true when you see the trailer and the different environments that the prisoners escape through, it's almost as if they have had to walk across multiple continents.

Have a look at the trailer and see what it makes you feel. It could be another epic for Peter Weir and a couple of great performances from Ed Harris and perhaps even Colin Farrell, and perhaps from the rest of the truly International cast.
