The Railway Man

Caught a bit but could not get into the film and the book is written in a way that fits the author but not something I could read thru either. Still, read parts and it is powerful stuff of someone who suffers torture and imprisonment in WWII and decades later (the film starts with a meet cute; the book is more linear) meets a translator from back then, obtaining some sense of closure and release. Hard to imagine humanity's cruelty and survival at times.
