I expect "The Way Back" to be good, but not as good as the 1937 movie "Grand Illusion." But still a good movie. A group of prisoners escape from a Gulage in 1940 and end uyp walking to India. It's a true story. It's based on the novel which became this movie. I like the performances of Ed Harris and Colin Farrell as two of the escapees. But the performer Iike the most is Saoirse Ronan (the only female performer in the movie). She continues to thrill me with her performances in the past three years. She impressed with with her role.
