PLOT: A fact-based story centered on soldiers who escaped from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and have to travel across a desert, snowy mountains, and forest in order to get to India.
CAST: Jim Sturgess (21), Colin Farrell, Ed Harris (A History of Violence), Saoirse Ronan (The Lovely Bones), Mark Strong (Sherlock Holmes), Dragoş Bucur, Gustaf Skarsgård
VERDICT: I like that Colin Farrell is taking the gradual journey back to the spotlight, taking ensemble, character-driven roles—and he's in great company. I'd watch this film just to see how much they have to go through. It looks like A LOT.
