The Bridge on the River Kwai
A film by David Lean
Starring William Holden, Alec Guinness, Jack Hawkins
“An epic masterpiece!” —Michael Sragow
This intelligent and exciting WWII tale, masterfully helmed by David Lean, features a splendid performance from Alec Guinness as Col. Nicholson, a British officer who has surrendered with his regiment to the Japanese in Burma in 1943. When the Japanese commander insists that the British prisoners construct an elaborate bridge over the gorge of the River Kwai, Nicholson eventually becomes determined to build the best bridge possible. Based on fact, the film stands as one of the finest war films ever, stunningly photographed and featuring a theme guaranteed to keep you whistling.
