Di­rec­tor Peter Weir’s gru­elling and mov­ing, fact-based yarn tells of a group of men who, in 1940, es­caped from a Soviet gu­lag in Siberia. We fol­low the es­capees as they make their treach­er­ous jour­ney to free­dom, walk­ing 4,000 miles across a land­scape of deserts, moun­tains and forests in a bid for free­dom in far away In­dia. Jim Sturgess is ex­cel­lent as the cen­tral char­ac­ter, as is Colin Far­rell, while a hag­gard Ed Har­ris is out­stand­ing as the sole Amer­i­can in the

group. Edited. Dir: Peter Weir 2010, 12, 155min

On the edge: Har­ris and Far­rell
