Drama
In a backwater of China during the Japanese invasion in the 1930s, a wayward British journalist named George Hogg (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) happens upon an orphanage full of starving boys. He spends the rest of this true-story drama rehabilitating them and leading them to safety 1,000 km to the West – with the help of an American nurse (Radha Mitchell), a communist partisan (Chow Yun Fat), and a merchant of opium (Michelle Yeoh). The uncomplicated, often inspiring screenplay by James MacManus and Jane Hawksley is directed soberly by veteran Roger Spottiswoode (Shake Hands with the Devil), who seems to thrive in disaster zones (114 min.).
