The Railway Man debuted to a standing ovation at the Toronto Film Festival, Deadline’s Pete Hammond wrote over the weekend. Present at the screening was Patti Lomax, the widow of Eric Lomax, the real-life subject of the story about a man who confronted his Japanese tormentor decades after the war. Nicole Kidman plays Patti in the Jonathan Teplitzky-directed film, opposite Colin Firth as Eric. Stellan Skarsgård, Jeremy Irvine and Hiroyuki Sanada also star. It doesn’t have a U.S. distributor, but there were several buyers checking it out in Toronto. CAA/Lionsgate is repping North America and Lionsgate UK releases in Britain on January 3.
