One Of The Greatest War Movies Of All Time!

Rediscover the epic struggle of British POWs fighting for survival in the lush but treacherous Burmese jungle. Given the option of building a railway bridge over the River Kwai or death, Colonel Nicholson (Alec Guinness) and his team of battered man choose survival, thus putting themselves in a harrowing race against time to thrive within the harsh conditions set by their captors.

The Bridge On The River Kwai embodies the peak of filmmaking and storytelling, winning seven Academy Awards in 1957, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor for Guinness. Bask in the brilliance of David Lean's amazing vision, where man become soldiers, and soldiers become heroes.
