Media Room Recommendation: The Way Back
I don't know how Peter Weir's latest movie, The Way Back, managed to survive the Hollywood machine without being turned into a complete POS, but it did. It opens tomorrow nationwide. If you have a chance to see it in a theater, I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's too bad the studio marketeers are doing nothing to promote this extraordinary movie. Maybe they've forgotten how to sell a film that's actually about something. Anyway, it's based on the non-fiction book The Long Walk by Slavomir Rawicz , which is impossible to put down.
