In March we heard that Nicole Kidman had replaced Rachel Weisz as Colin Firth’s wife in The Railway Man. Today we have the first pics from the movie set, and Nic is there with real life hubby, Keith Urban and their eldest daughter Sunday Rose. They are shooting in St Monans, in the UK. Nic looks every bit the war-time wife… check out her new look.
The Railway Man is a drama based on the life history of Eric Lomax and his horrific experiences as a Japanese prisoner in World War II. They have totally got the look down pat with Nic’s hair and costume, right? She looks pretty cute, and also like she has also aged 15 years.
I think this story is going to make a good movie. I’m also pretty happy with the casting. Colin Firth will do a great job, and Nic is a pro at these type of historic characters. Nicole is playing the role of Patti, Eric’s wife, who in the true story played a major part in helping her husband to face up the longstanding psychological damage he suffered from his wartime experiences. It is a very developed character, and I’m particularly interested to see how Colin handles the intensity of playing Eric Lomax. Do you like the sound of this new flick?
