The Way Back (2010)


Adventure, Drama, History

The Way Back is survival film directed by Peter Weir, from a screenplay by Weir and Keith Clarke. The film is inspired by The Long Walk (1956), the memoir by former Polish prisoner of war Sławomir Rawicz, who claimed to have escaped from a Soviet Gulag and walked 4,000 miles (6,400 km) to freedom in World War II.

Inspired by Slavomir Rawicz’s acclaimed book, “The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom” as well as other real life accounts, six time Oscar nominated director Peter Weir’s “The Way Back” is a remarkable adventure story chronicling the escape of a small group of multi-national prisoners from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and their epic life affirming journey over thousands of miles across five hostile countries. Stars Ed Harris, Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Saoirse Ronan. A smash during its recent World Premiere at the Telluride Film Festival.
