The Way Back
Another new film out on DVD is The Way Back. With a night time blizzard as cover, seven prisoners, caught up in Stalin’s Reign of Terror, escape a Soviet Gulag 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. It’s an epic, heartfelt story of survival, a stirring triumph-of-the-spirit drama that you’ll not soon forget. Based on a true story.
