Four-time Oscar nominee, Ed Harris (Apollo 13
), Jim Sturgess (Across the Universe
) and Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement
) and Colin Farrell (In Bruges
) star in this epic saga of survival from six-time Oscar-nominee Peter Weir (Witness
, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
). Inspired by an incredible true story, The Way Back
begins in 1940 when seven prisoners attempt the impossible: escape from a brutal Siberian gulag. Thus begins a treacherous 4,500-mile trek to freedom across the world's most merciless landscapes. They have little food and few supplies. They don't know or trust each other. But together, they must withstand nature at its most extreme. Their humanity is further tested when they meet a teenage runaway who begs to join them on their quest. A compelling testament to the human spirit, this gripping wilderness adventure is "Peter Weir at his hypnotic best" (Telluride Film Festival
). Widescreen. Rated PG. Approx. 133 minutes.Special Features:
