Inspired by true events during World War II, The Way Back is a thrilling tale of survival, solidarity and indomitable human will, released on Blu-ray and DVD on 9th May 2011, courtesy of Entertainment One.

The Way Back is directed by six-time Academy Award® nominee Peter Weir (Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World), and features enthralling performances from an all-star cast including Colin Farrell (Crazy Heart, In Bruges), Jim Sturgess (The Other Boleyn Girl, Across the Universe) and Ed Harris (A Beautiful Mind, The Truman Show) who break free from a Siberian Gulag on a treacherous and adrenalin-fuelled journey across 4,000 miles of hostile terrain. Also featuring an acclaimed supporting cast including Mark Strong (Robin Hood, RocknRolla) and Academy Award® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Atonement, The Lovely Bones), The Way Back is an un-missable adventure.

Under cover of a night time blizzard, seven prisoners caught up in Stalin's Reign of Terror escape a Soviet Gulag prison in 1940. They are now free men and almost certainly dead men, for their impending trek to safety defies any reasonable chance of success and the landscape they must cross is unforgiving. With little food or equipment, and no certainty of their location or intended direction, they embark on a journey that will present unimaginable hardship and drama.

Driven by basic animal instincts; survival and fear, whilst relying on evolved human traits; compassion and trust, the group endures transformative experiences that are profound and abysmal, anguished and ecstatic. All the while, they abide by one unceasing mandate: keep moving, keep moving, keep moving...

Impressively directed and sharply written by Peter Weir and executive producer Keith Clarke, The Way Back is inspired by Slavomir Rawicz's acclaimed book The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom.

The striking shots across Bulgaria, Morocco and India were captured by Academy Award® winning director of photography Russell Boyd (Master and Commander, The Year of Living Dangerously, Gallipoli) and are enhanced in stunning HD quality on Blu-ray. Featuring gripping bonus material, The Way Back is a must-own on Blu-ray and DVD. Keep the momentum of this heroic journey for survival alive and own The Way Back on Blu-ray and DVD from 9th May 2011, courtesy of Entertainment One.
