The Way Back appears to be an epic movie of one of the greatest prison escapes ever, never mind that the prison is in Siberia. Set in 1940 and based on true events, the escapees traveled over 4000 miles in harsh environments to reach home. The movie was filmed in India, Morocco, Bulgaria, and Australia. Peter Weir directs and stars Colin Farrell, Jim Sturgess, Ed Harris, and Saorise Ronan.
The Way Back is in theatres in a limited release January 21, 2011.
