The Railway Man

I just remembered I saw this film a couple of weeks ago and really liked it. Based on a true story of English soldiers captured by the Japanese in WWII and predictably treated horribly. Without spoiling the film, the end result is the beginning of the very real attempt to reconcile troops from both sides and put their past treatment behind them. Not a lot of action, and no boobies but well done and a few surprises and worth watching.
"Take a look at that". Sgt. Wilkerson-- CMBN. His last words after spotting a German tank on the other side of a hedgerow.
